Non-Custodial Pennsylvania Father, Sex Offender, Sought for Taking 4-Year-Old Son

Police have been searching for a convicted sex offender from the Pittsburgh area who has not been seen since he took his 4-year-old son to the movies last week.

Allegheny County police were searching for 43-year-old Radford Pope because he's the boy's noncustodial parent.

Police haven't been able to locate Pope since he failed to return 4-year-old Raymont Pope to his mother on Sept. 10.

Police have said Pope has a criminal history as a Megan's Law offender, though they haven't specified why.

He has ties to the Pittsburgh suburbs of Clairton, East Pittsburgh, Oakmont and Wilkinsburg, but also to out-of-state locations including Los Angeles, Atlanta, Washington, and Syracuse, New York.
