Albemarle County police are asking for your help in locating Timothy Ray Shifflett. 

Police have been looking for 45-year-old Shifflett since Friday. He is wanted on two felony counts of forced sodomy and a probation violation. Police say the two crimes were committed between 2004 and 2006 with a person under the age of 18.    

Investigators say the last time someone has seen Shifflett was on Friday when police obtained the warrants. Shifflett's last known address is on the 1200 block of Simmons Gap Road in Albemarle County.   

He is a registered sex offender and has been convicted of a separate forcible sodomy charge plus aggravated sexual battery back in 1995.   

"He is a convicted sex offender, as you can see on the website, if you go to the Virginia State Police website he is on there. We take them all seriously -- any case involving a sexual offender, whether it was a first offense or a repeat offender," said Sergeant Tim Aylor with the Albemarle County Police Department. 

Police are not able to say much about Shifflett's case yet because it concerns a minor.   

Shifflett's name may sound familiar. He has two brothers who have also been in trouble.

A year ago, officers shot Timothy's brother, Elvis, after a week-long manhunt stemming from an attempted shooting in Court Square.    

A week later, police arrested another brother, Jeff, after a high speed chase on several breaking and entering charges.

Police are asking anyone with information on the whereabouts of Timothy Shifflett to call Crime Stoppers at 434-977-4000.
