The Muscogee Sheriff John Darr took to Facebook Wednesday to ask that everyone be on the lookout for a wanted sex offender.

Darr said Darrell Cochran, who was convicted of aggravated assault with the intent to rape, has been issued an arrest warrant for failure to register as a sex offender. The 5-foot-6 tall black man weighs approximately 152 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes, according to the sheriff's post.

"Do not attempt to apprehend this individual," Darr wrote. "Call law enforcement immediately upon sight."

Anyone who has information about Cochran is encouraged to call the Muscogee County Sheriff's Office at 706-653-4225 or email the agency at muscosheriff@columbusga.org.
