    He failed to do so however. Police also say that Wright is a high risk Tier 3 sex offender.

    40-year-old David Layell is a moderate risk Tier 2 sex offender, according to investigators. Police say that he no longer lives at his former residence in Wilmington and that he no longer works at the job that he previously registered with them. Investigators say that he is required to report any change of his residential or employment status.

    Wright is a black male, standing at 5-foot-9 and weighing 230 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. He is charged with failure to verify address.

    Layell is a white male, standing at 5-foot-10 and weighing 195 pounds. He has brown hair and hazel eyes. He is charged with two counts of failure to register a new address.
