OFFICERS STILL SEARCHING FOR SEX OFFENDER ON A LEAVE

Salt Lake County law-enforcement agents were still trying Saturday to locate a high-risk sex offender who was mistakenly allowed to go on a home visit with his father a week ago.

Elvis Dean Brown, 23, could possibly be in the West Valley City area, where his father lives, county and city dispatchers radioed to officers Saturday afternoon.On May 18, a nurse at the Utah State Developmental Center in American Fork let Brown leave when his father picked him up and told officials he was taking his son on an approved visit for a few hours. The visit was not approved, police say.

Brown, who is mentally disabled, has a history of criminal activity, including a 1992 arrest for molesting a 12-year-old boy in Salt Lake City.
