Police hunt for Victorian sex offender

Police are hunting a Victorian registered sex offender who gave authorities a false address and has not been seen since.

Police on Friday appealed to the public to help track down 23-year-old Ricky Wilson, who also goes by six aliases, saying he may be frequenting the Geelong, Norlane, Corio and Richmond areas.

Wilson is about 160cm tall, with a medium build, black hair, brown eyes and a number of distinct tattoos, including "Kiarra" written on his right wrist and "Mum" on his left wrist.
