Area authorities are looking for Patricia J. Dye again.

Dye, 38, is accused of failing since June 21 to record a change of address as required because she is a registered sex offender.

Dye was wanted by Butler County in 2012 until sheriff’s deputies brought her back from Orick, California.

Dye went there when she was released from the Warren County Jail in 2010 after serving six months for contributing to the delinquency of a child, sexual imposition and attempted sexual imposition.

She was arrested after posing as teenage boy named Matt Abrams to build a sexual relationship with a Springboro girl, investigators said. After her release she moved to Middletown, but then moved west without registering her address.

She was “at large” on Monday, according to Warren County authorities, charged with failing to provide notice of a change of address, a fourth-degree felony.
