(KMOV.com) – A registered sex offender is found living close to a child daycare center and workers there want him to move far away.

Timothy Wilson, 52, was involved in a sex crime 22 years ago that involves an 11-year-old girl. Wilson’s listed address is just blocks away from Maxine’s Daycare off of Silver Street in Alton. Owner Maxine Caldwell is concerned for the safety of the children in her daycare.

“I don't think it’s the police’s fault that he's here. I think it’s the person who paroled him here. It’s their fault,” said Caldwell.

Alton Police said they gave Wilson several weeks to find a new place to live after discovering he was in violation. However, Wilson did not move, nor can be located.

“We don’t think Wilson is a threat at this point, but he has been charged and is wanted by the police,” said Emily Hejna of the Alton Police.
