Putnam County Sheriff’s Office searching for absconded sex offender

The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public for help locating an absconded sexual offender.

Randy Long, 32, is a registered sex offender who has absconded from supervision. He was a resident of Palatka before he left. His crimes occurred in Nassau and Marion counties so authorities believe he could be hiding out there.

Long sometimes goes by the nickname “Rooster” and has a tattoo on his neck.

The Sheriff’s Office asks the public to call 386-329-0801 if it has any information that may help officials get Long into his “new home” otherwise known as the Putnam County Jail. You can also leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 1-888-277-8477. If your tip leads to an arrest you may be eligible for an award.
