Martin County deputies received an anonymous tip that 65-year-old Ernest Eugene Reigh, described by authorities as a "sexually violent predator," was seen near Indian Riverside Park in Jensen Beach Wednesday.

Deputies said that while they cannot confirm the sighting, they want to make everyone aware Reigh may be in the area.

He was released on March first in Fort Pierce and was supposed to report to his probation officer and register his address but he never did.
