Several law enforcement divisions are on the hunt for some of the state's "most wanted" sexual predators and one of them is in our backyard.

Michigan State Police and members of other law enforcement agencies including the U.S. Marshals are hunting for criminals with outstanding warrants. One of the men they are looking for is Anthony Beaurem, a man Jones says is Michigan's most wanted sex offender.

Beaurem, who is also wanted for attempted murder, was convicted in Florida of having inappropriate sexual contact with a child under the age of 14, but hasn't registered with authorities in months and it's believed he is hiding out somewhere near Flint.

Unfortunately, Michigan's "most wanted" sex offender has thus far been able to avoid capture and police are turning to the public to help find him. If you see Beaurem, do not approach him as he is considered armed and dangerous. Instead you are asked to call 911 immediately. More in the video.
