Sex offender vanishes after giving false address

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a convicted sex offender who provided a false home address.

Vincent Brentley Hall, 28, has a warrant out for his arrest for violation of the sex offender registry.

Hall registered in Forsyth County on Monday, providing an address on Chattahoochee Road, according to the sheriff’s office.

On Tuesday, investigators went to the home to verify the address and “information received [there] revealed” that he had never lived there, a sheriff’s office news release states.

According to Georgia law, any person convicted of a criminal sex offense in any state or territory must register once a year with local law enforcement, providing accurate information about where they work and live. They must also notify authorities if they move.

Hall was convicted of child molestation in April 2007 in Gwinnett County, according to state records.
