Ohio sex offenders: Where are they?

Ohio law officers cannot find at least 301 sex offenders -- including 38 in central Ohio -- who have failed to register their address as required by the state's Megan's Law.

Of those in central Ohio, 33 are supposed to be in Franklin County and five in surrounding counties.

Among the wanted are predators who have committed violent rapes, including one Columbus man involved in a gang rape of two teen-agers, and a Delaware County man who molested an elderly woman in a home invasion. Others on the list have molested children.
