A convicted sex offender, wanted for questioning, has been located in Lexington.

83-year-old Carl Hair is accused of trying to lure young girls into his car in Nicholas County.

Hair was located and questioned Tuesday morning after a caller tipped Lexington police. He is believed to have been staying at an apartment complex on South Ashland Street.

The Nicholas County Sheriff's Department has been looking for Hair for about a month. The sheriff is trying to figure out where to go from here.

    Gee, what to do, what to do. I am a sheriff and I am in a great quandry. I know, I will get statements from eye witnesses and then take the bugger to court and then when he is convicted again, I will toss him in jail and toss the key down the toilet.

    READ THE STORY! He is already a convicted sex offender - this means he has already been convicted of crimes of a sexual nature! He has already destroyed his life as well as the lives of those he has molested. He IS a no good sicko perv!

    Imagine for a moment that he might actually be innocent -- and how a public charge like this can destroy his life. It's almost impossible to defend yourself from public claims that you're a possible pedophile. I dunno if he's guilty or innocent, but realize that it doesn't take much to get your branded as a no good, sicko perv.

    I think that this person is sick. I am not talking old age I mean sick in the head. I think that it is ashame that someone this old is still out there to get and lure young children to him. He needs a jail cell that he can live out the rest of his life in!!!!
