MADISON COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) -- A manhunt is underway for a convicted sex offender that police say is armed and dangerous.

The Madison County Sheriff's Office is currently searching for 30-year-old Christopher Moto of Anderson.

He is wanted on warrants of failure to register as a sex offender, a probation violation and failure to return to lawful detention.

Police are searching northeast of Anderson and have deployed a drone to help find Moto. A K-9 is also aiding in the search.
