(WTOL) - Lucas Co. Deputies need your help finding a sex offender who they say may have become a cross dresser to hide his identity.

Montel Lamar Mickles, 20, was convicted of rape when he was 15-years-old in Allen Co. Juvenile Court.

He's been released from lock up and has to register as a sex offender every 90 days.

Mickles last registered an address on North Michigan Ave. in Toledo, which deputies now call a wrong address.

Mickles is 5'0" and weighs 130 pounds.

If you've seen him, call CrimeStopper at 419-255-1111.
