SARASOTA - The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office is attempting to locate a convicted sex offender, 32 year old Brian Lacy.  Lacy is wanted for failing to register his address and for Lewd or Lascivious Battery on a 14 year old girl.

Detectives responded to Sarasota Memorial Hospital yesterday to meet with the victim, who reported that she had a sexual encounter with Lacy the week before.  The girl said he called her over to his apartment claiming he had something for her to give her grandmother.  The victim told her mother that Lacy forced her to have sex.  The mother confronted Lacy, and he fled the area a short time later.

Detectives found that Lacy reported his address as 1678 36th Street in Sarasota, but they determined he had been living at 2522 Mango Avenue since February 2013.

Anyone with information on Lacy's whereabouts is asked to call Criminal Investigations at (941) 861-4900, leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers (941) 366-TIPS (8477), or online at www.sarasotacrimestoppers.com
