UPDATED: Sex offender found, admitted to hospital



Law enforcement has reportedly located a convicted sex offender for whom they'd previously been searching.

John Dunn III, 51, was located by officers of the Bellefontaine police Department about 4:30 p.m. Monday within the city limits.

He was originally lodged in Logan County Jail, but was released later Monday and admitted to Mary Rutan Hospital over concerns about his health, jail staff reported Monday.


The defendant reported to authorities on May 28 that he was homeless and he has not been heard from since that time, deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office report.

He is listed as a sexually-oriented offender for raping a handicapped woman in 2004, but most recently served a prison sentence for failure to provide an address in accordance with sex offender notification laws.

The Adult Parole Authority has issued a warrant for his arrest.

Anyone with information on Mr. Dunn’s whereabouts is urged to call the sheriff’s office at 592-5731.
