Deputies seeking help in finding registered violent offender

Lyon County authorities are asking for help as they try to find a registered violent offender.

Miguel Hernandez, 56, is wanted for violating the Kansas Offender Registration Act.

Sheriff Jeff Cope says Hernandez hasn't been reporting as mandated for some time. Hernandez is also wanted by the Kansas Department of Corrections as a parole absconder since March of last year.

Hernandez is 5-feet-7 inches tall, 155 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He also has multiple tattoos, including a teardrop near his left eye and a set of handcuffs on his left forearm. In addition, Hernandez goes by numerous aliases.

Hernandez was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in April 2002 for the death of Gail A. Morgan Willingham in September 2001.

If you have information, call the Lyon County Sheriff's Office at 342-5545 or Lyon County Crime Stoppers at 342-2273.
