Police in Indiana need help to find a man they described as a violent sexual predator.

Maurice Ward is a convicted sex offender and is wanted by the LaPorte County's Sheriff's Office, according to a press release from authorities.

Police said failed to notify authorities of his change in address in Michigan City.

Ward was first convicted in 2004 as a sexually violent predator, according to authorities.

Police warned that he may try to hurt himself and others if attempts are made to arrest him.
