Deputies are looking for James Edward Daye, wanted on several offenses, including his failure to report his whereabouts as a registered sex offender.

The Vance County Sheriff’s Office released a photo and description of Daye. He is described as a black male, age 33, standing 5-foot-9 and weighing 162 pounds.

Lt. Joseph Ferguson said Daye had last been seen in the Oxford area on Tuesday earlier this week, but he has ties to both Vance and Granville counties.
