Andrew Genders was convicted of abusing a little boy he was babysitting. He is failing to register as a sex offender and breaking probation.

“He’s somebody who’s registered as transient and trying to take advantage of the loophole so that we won’t be able to find him when he takes off,” said Pierce County Det. Ed Troyer. “We want to get him caught because family members have said that they’re probably out there helping him hide and that we’re not going to be able to catch him. He was babysitting a four-year-old when he committed his crimes, so this is definitely somebody that we don’t want babysitting children. We need to get him in custody.”

Genders is 5’4” and weighs around 140 pounds. He has a tattoo of a mushroom on his right lower leg and a hornet on his left lower leg. He has ear gauges as well. Genders has ties to California. After abusing the boy in Graham he moved to Rialto, about an hour and a half east of Los Angeles, where he was later arrested for the sex crimes.

If you know where he’s hiding, call an anonymous tip into Crime Stoppers of Tacoma/Pierce County at 1 (800) 222-TIPS. There is a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to his arrest.
