Authorities: If you see this wanted sex offender, call police

OAKLAND, Ore. -- The Oregon Department of Corrections is looking for an Oakland man who is a wanted sex offender.

Authorities say Paul Silas Stephenson, 26, of Oakland, is being investigated by the Sutherlin Police Department for allegations involving minors.

The Oregon State Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision says Stephenson targets girls between the ages of 14-17, and uses various websites in order to meet them.

In a release Tuesday afternoon, authorities say the man, "propositions his victims for sexual contact and may use force or coercion."

Officials say there are three known minor female victims.

There has been a warrant issued by the board for his arrest.

Officials are asking anyone that might know where he is, or if you think he contacted you online, to call your local police department.

Stephenson is described as 5'6" tall, 180 pounds, with brown eyes and hair.
