PERRY COUNTY, Pa. (WHTM) — The Perry County Sheriff’s Office has announced they are searching for a child sex offender who they consider “armed and dangerous.”

The sheriff’s office says they are looking for Barry Allen Bostwick of Rye Township after a felony warrant was issued for failing to appear during sentencing on Thursday, Sept. 14.

Bostwick had been convicted at trial for multiple counts of deviate sexual intercourse with a child and deemed a sexually violent predator.

Are Ames department stores reopening or has it been an elaborate hoax?
