Wanted: high-risk sex offender
Douglas County Community Corrections is looking for a high-risk sex offender who has tampered with his GPS tracking unit Wednesday afternoon at approximately 2 p.m. Gregory Ferguson, 56, is a white, 5'11" man and weighs about 230 lbs. In his most recent mug shot, he is bald with a graying beard.
Ferguson's last known location was on a bike trail in Roseburg, east of Gaddis Park. Ferguson's mother lives in Eagle Point, so it's possible that he is heading to Jackson County via Greyhound bus or hitchhiking, according to the DCCC.
Ferguson is under numerous probationary special conditions, ranging from geographical limitations, to not being allowed in places where minor congregate, and is restricted from alcohol. He is under probation after serving time for Rape I and Attempted Murder.
His target victims are described as adult women and adolescent men.
The DCCC would like the public to know that Ferguson has a "significant history of violence against women," including strangers.
If you have any information regarding his whereabouts, please contact DCCC at (541) 957-8148 or your local law enforcement for immediate action.
