Bruce Emerson Sawhill, a convicted sex offender, is wanted for committing sexual acts on a minor. Approximately in 2001, Sawhill allegedly sexually assaulted a young female child on more than one occasion, in Jefferson County, Missouri. Sawhill had previously befriended the victim's parents and gained access to the victim.
Sawhill was subsequently charged in Missouri with two counts of statutory sodomy and released on bond pending a trial. Sawhill failed to appear in court on the trial date. On June 5, 2006, a federal arrest warrant was issued for Sawhill, and he was charged with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
In 2004 or 2005, Sawhill could have travelled to the Pacific Northwest area, to include Oregon or Washington. Additionally, Sawhill has reportedly grown marijuana in the past and could be working on a marijuana farm.
