MANATEE - Manatee County sheriff's officials are looking for a sexual predator who on Thursday walked away from his Palmetto rooming house and has not been since. Hirum Croxall may have removed the ankle bracelet used to trace his movements.
Croxall, 50, last December was convicted of lewd and lascivious upon a child under the age of 12 and sentenced to 10 years community supervision.
His last known coordinates were at the Wal-Mart Supercenter in the 5300 block of Cortez Road West, Bradenton. However, it appears, the tracking device has not moved since Thursday, and it is possible the bracelet was removed and abandoned in or near the store.
Croxall stands 6 feet tall and weighs 200 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes.
