A Hudson Valley sex offender who's called a sexual predator is hiding from police.

The Sullivan County Sheriff's Office is looking for Level-2 sex offender Joshua Mickelonins. The 30-year-old previously lived on Whittaker Road in Fallsburg but fled the area, police say.

Registered sex offenders are required to tell police if they move. Mickelonis is wanted for failure to register.

Anyone with information concerning Mickelonis is urged to call the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office at 845-794-7100 or the office's confidential tips line at 845-807-0158.

Police describe Mickelonis as being a 5'9," 210 white man with blue eyes and brown hair.

If you see him police warn, stay a safe distance and call 911. Don't try to apprehend him yourself.

Mickelonis is labeled as a "Sexual Predator," on the New York State Sex Offender's database. He committed what's described only as a "felonious sexual assault," in 2007.
