South Lake Tahoe police are asking for the public’s help in locating a convicted sex offender who has allegedly failed to register his residence with police.
Rafael Corea was convicted for lewd and lascivious acts with a minor aged 14 or 15 in 1995, according to a press release from the City of South Lake Tahoe.
“This conviction requires him to register as a sexual offender for the remainder of his life,” according to the release. “In the fall of 2015 Corea failed to register with the South Lake Tahoe Police Department as a sexual offender. Failure to register as required by law amounts to a felony violation of the California Penal Code. Detectives discovered Corea has moved out of his former residence in South Lake Tahoe, Ca and his current whereabouts are unknown.”
The South Lake Tahoe Police Department holds a felony arrest warrant for Corea for failure to register.

Police ask anyone who may have information about this case to call the South Lake Tahoe Police Department at 530-542-6100 or, to remain anonymous, Lake Tahoe Secret Witness at 530-541-6800.
