The Front Royal Police Department is seeking information on the whereabouts of Wayne Isaal Tibbs, a registered sex offender wanted on charges of assault and battery to a juvenile and sexual battery to a juvenile.
Authorities describe Tibbs, 45, as 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing 165 pounds.
The sex offender registry lists Tibbs's address as 4172 Rosstown Road, Marshall, but authorities say they believe he is in the Front Royal area.
The registry states that he was convicted of aggravated sexual battery in Loudon County Circuit Court in 2000 and convicted of failing to register as a violent sex offender in Frederick County in 2006.
Tibbs is on probation and is also being sought for a probation violation, according to police. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Jason Lethcoe with the criminal investigations division at 636-2208.
