Batesville Police seeking sex offender who violated reporting act for registered offenders

The Batesville Police Department is asking for assistance in seeking the whereabouts of a sex offender.  In December, John Clifton Brown registered, as required by law, as a sex offender from Texas moving into a residence located at 626 Boswell St. in Batesville.

On Feb. 16, another resident informed the authorities that Brown had left the residence earlier that month and was no longer living there. Brown has not checked in to report his whereabouts since, according to authorities. This is a violation of the reporting act for registered sex offenders.

John Clifton Brown, 56, is described as a 6-foot-1 white male, weighing 210 pounds with medium build. He has brown hair and brown eyes.

If anyone has information as to his whereabouts, please contact the Batesville Police Department at (870) 569-8111.
