During this holiday season, we hope you give the gift of safety to a child by helping us find a fugitive sex offender. At the time of this taping, Paul Lawrence Taylor is wanted for the felony charge of Failure to Comply with Sex Offender Registration Requirements.  Taylor has three convictions for sex offenses against children.

Taylor was living at 400 Garner St. in Lufkin up until August, when he stopped his required check-ins with Lufkin Police and absconded.  He has family in Lufkin, and we believe he may still be in the area.  Taylor is known to drive a gold Ford Contour with custom wheels.

Paul Lawrence Taylor is a 37-year-old African-American male.  He is approximately 5'7" tall and weighs about 145 lbs.  The photo at right was taken in late 2005.  Taylor has a gold front tooth that doesn't show in this photo.

Never approach a wanted felon yourself because they may be dangerous.  Provide us with the information and we will make the arrest.

If you know where Paul Taylor is, call Crime Stoppers at 639-TIPS.   You never have to give your name, and Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1000 for information that leads to Taylor's arrest.
