The US Marshals are asking for your help finding a registered sex offender. They have been searching for Leon Shannon Scott in the Columbus County area for years to no avail.
   
Marshals tell us there have been a few reported sightings of Scott in Whiteville, but no solid leads. Scott is 34 years old, 5'9'', and 140 pounds. 

Scott has a long rap sheet including a conviction for 2nd degree kidnapping of a minor. He is now wanted for being a registered sex offender and failing to notify authorities of his current address.
 
Authorities have received tips that Scott may be traveling with a carnival based out of Columbus County, but at this point they have not been able to verify that.

If you have any information that could help them find him, you are asked to call the US Marshals at 910-599-1379. All tips are confidential and greatly appreciated.
