(WTOL) - Lucas County Sheriff's Deputies need your help finding the man who beat and molested an 11-year-old girl.

Efrem Smith, 34, started molesting his victim when she was eight years old.

She told police she threatened to beat her if she did not cooperate or take off her clothes.

He was convicted of gross sexual imposition in 2006 and served 14 months behind bars.

Smith must register as a sex offender twice a year, but failed to do so last month.

Smith stands 5'9" and weighs 285 pounds.

His last known address was on Cherry St. in Toledo.

If you know where Smith is, call CrimeStopper at 419-255-1111.
