CHATHAM COUNTY, GA -

If Rodriguez Coleman looks familiar to you, it's because News 3 profiled him back in April for failing to register as a sex offender.  

But almost as soon as he was caught he was back on the run again, and back under indictment.

"Statutory rape, child molestation, obstruction of an officer," said Deputy Frank Rollins of the Chatham County Sheriff's Office. "This is one of the criminals you bump into him and encounter him, stay back from him, contact authorities."

Rodriguez Coleman is 6 foot 3, 153 pounds, and could be in the Liberty City area, the 800 block of Lloyd street, or 47th street near Beach High School.

Joel Bunton is another wanted man, another convicted sex offender.

"He's been charged with statutory rape, interference with custody, child molestation," said Rollins. "He's known to be in the Concord area of Wilmington Island. Last time we saw him was February 27, 2013, the day he registered."

If you can help find either Rodriguez Coleman or Joel Bunton, contact the Chatham County Sheriff's Office or Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020.
 
Remember if your tip leads to an arrest, you could eligible for a cash reward.
