The search continues for a sex offender who escaped custody in Jacksonville.

When Leelynn Mark Drye showed up to register on Thursday the corrections department ran a computer check on him, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

They found a violation and handcuffed him.  But he asked to use the restroom and escaped through a window.

He may still have handcuffs on.

If you see him you are urged to contact your local law enforcement agency.
