POINSETT COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

The Poinsett County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in locating a missing sex offender.

According to the PCSO Facebook page, deputies are searching for Joseph Sheldon Heard. Heard is a Level 3 sex offender, who is not at his previously registered home.

According to the post, Heard was last registered living at a house on Maple Grove Lane in Trumann. 

During a compliance check by investigators, it was discovered that Heard had not lived at that address for over six months.

Heard is now wanted on a felony warrant for failure to register. 

State law requires a sex offender “shall report in person every six (6) months after registration to the local law enforcement agency having jurisdiction to verify registration.”

If you have any information on his whereabouts, please contact the Poinsett County Sheriff’s Office at (870) 578-2116.
