Brooksville, FL-- The Hernando County Sheriff's Office is seeking assistance from the public in locating an absconded sex offender.

They say 52-year-old Dewayne Royce McLendon Sr. was last seen on or about November 10 off of Linden Dr. in Spring Hill. 

He and his roommate, Donna Altamuro, reportedly vacated their residence on that street and are believed to be transient in the Brooksville area.

A warrant has been issued for McLendon's arrest for "Failure to Comply with Sex Offender Obligations", reports say. 

Officials request that you do not initiate contact with Mclendon, as his previous history suggests he could potentially be considered aggressive and/ or dangerous. 

If you have information on this individual, please contact the Hernando County Sheriff's Office at 352-754-6830 or Detective Tom Breedlove direct at 352-797-3716 or
