Arizona authorities search for convicted sex offender

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities are searching for a convicted sex offender from Tucson who's facing additional charges and is reported to be on the run.

The Arizona Attorney General's Office says 35-year-old Chad Andrew Berkley is accused of downloading child pornography and storing images on Google accounts and his cellphone.

They say Berkley faces sexual exploitation of a child charges.

Law-enforcement agencies across Arizona have been unable to locate Berkley since he failed to appear for his scheduled court appearance in Pima County on Jan. 26.

His last registered address is in Tucson.

The AG's Office indicted Berkley in August 2015 on 12 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

He had been released on a $10,000 bond.

Authorities say Berkley pleaded guilty to a sexual offense involving a child in 2005.
