Sheriff John Cottle is asked the Lincoln County community for help in locating absconded sex offender, 29-year-old Nicholas Kargbo Eshun, of Troy.
In June 2015, Eshun was convicted of two counts of Article 80, Attempted Sexual Assault of a Child (14-year old female), of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), while stationed in Okinawa, Japan. As a result of the conviction, Eshun is required to register as a sex offender with the Sheriff’s Office.
After failing to register on August 10, 2017, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Sex Offender Compliance Unit learned Eshun changed his residence to learn he moved to an unknown location and left his job in June 2017. Eshun was last seen in the Troy area.
The Sheriff’s Office currently has a warrant for his arrest.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Nicholas Kargbo Eshun is encouraged to call the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at 636-528-6100 or Detective Flynn at 636-528-8546 Ex. 3247.
