WANTED – Robert James Tilton – Sex Offender

Authorities at the University of Maine Farmington are searching for a South Carolina sex offender who allegedly traveled nearly 1,200 miles to Maine by bus to meet a female student he met on-line.

Robert James Tilton, 19, is described at a white male, 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighing between 170 and 190 pounds. He has several facial piercings and was last seen wearing jeans, a ski jacket, dark green winter hat and small beaded chains around his wrists and fingers.

Tilton gained access to a locked residence hall on Feb. 10 and later gave a false name to the on-duty public safety officer and said he was staying at a local motel. A check of area motels revealed that Tilton was not registered. Two large knives were later found hidden in the area of the residence hall where Tilton entered the building.

According to the South Carolina Sex Offender Registry, Tilton’s last known address was Clarendon. He was convicted in February 2006 for first-degree criminal sexual conduct involving a six-year-old.

Tilton is wanted for questioning at this time. Anyone who locates him is asked to call the UMF Department of Public Safety at (207) 778-7400.
