This Friday, we're looking for your help to track down a fugitive in our state.

Wanted: Joshua Lamar Snyder
Charges: Probation violation on amended charges of attempted sexual conduct with a minor

Police believe Snyder, who was put on probation twice for sex crimes with minors, has allegedly struck again.

Snyder served nearly two years in prison after pleading guilty to reduced charges of attempted sexual conduct with a minor. He was released from prison in August of 2015 and placed on lifetime probation. He hasn't been seen since March 24, but authorities believe Snyder committed more sex crimes on March 12. He is wanted for furnishing harmful items to minors, sexual abuse of a minor and sexual conduct with a minor.

In Snyder's last case from 2013, he bought alcohol for a 16-year-old girl and had sex with her on multiple occasions. At the time he was 30 years old and already serving lifetime probation in connection to another conviction regarding sex with a minor.


Snyder is 34 years old, 5'10"  and 150 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes. He has a tattoo on his right arm of a monkey and a tribal band.
