Search Continues for Wanted Man
The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office and the US Marshals are receiving tips from the public as they continue to search for a man wanted for sex crimes against children. 49-year old Timothy Wayne Register, who was convicted in July, took off his court ordered GPS bracelet on Sunday. It was found near Eldon. Deputies searched Register’s home in Sunrise Beach and found a letter that said he would not go back to prison. Register was set to be sentenced on Thursday for one count of statutory sodomy, one count of statutory rape, and two counts of child molestation. He is described as a white male, five foot six, 145 pounds with short gray hair and brown eyes. He has tattoos on his back, chest and both arms. Authorities say Register has known connections in Cuba, Missouri and Tallahassee, Florida. He is considered dangerous. Anyone with information is asked to call the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office.
