ROSEBURG, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Police are seeking the public’s help in locating a registered sex offender who was reported missing late last year.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said Paul Stephenson, 26, from Oakland, Oregon, was reported missing by family members on Dec. 5, 2013.

Family members told police that they have not heard from Stephenson since Nov. 16, 2013.
