Just before learning his fate, a Lake-area man runs from the law.

Timothy RegisterMorgan County Deputies say Timothy Register was convicted of statutory sodomy, rape, and child molestation in July, and he was set to be sentenced Thursday, Oct. 17. On Sunday, Oct. 13, deputies say Register removed a GPS monitoring bracelet, which was found in Eldon.

After searching his home near Sunrise Beach, investigators found a letter Register apparently wrote, saying he wouldn’t go back to prison.

Deputies are now hunting for Register, who they say is dangerous. They’re asking anyone with any information to call the Morgan County Sheriff’s office at (573) 378-5481, or call their local law enforcement agency.
