Kentucky state police are searching for a man wanted for failing to maintain his registration with the Sex Offender Registry for a second time, according to a news release from the state police post in Frankfort.

Ricky L. Carpenter, 44, last registered an address in Sadieville, but police say that address is not current. Carpenter is also wanted in Fayette County for felony theft charges, the release said. This is Carpenter's second offense for being non-compliant with the registry, which is a Class C felony, the release said.

Police say he could be traveling with his girlfriend in a 1993 Ford Ranger pickup truck, with a license plate that reads 434-FMT. Carpenter is about 5 feet, 11 inches tall, weighs 170 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone who has seen Carpenter may call the Frankfort post at (502) 227-2221 or any local law enforcement agency.
