CRAWFORD COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) – The Crawford County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help finding a register sex offender in connection with an arson investigation.
The sheriff’s office released a photo of 28-year-old Ryan E. Radel, of Steelville, and said he was being sought as a suspect in regard to the Cherryville Church of God arson investigation. The office said Radel is currently compliant as sex offender.
Tuesday, authorities attempted to find Radel at his home but were unsuccessful, which is why they are asking for the public’s help.
