Sex offender shifts moorings

A 36-year-old sex offender is residing on a boat on the Manatee River near DeSoto National Park in Bradenton, according to a June 8 sex offender registry report.

In May, the state registry reported his residence in the mouth of the Manatee River on Tampa Bay after moving from another Manatee River location near northwest Bradenton in March 2016.

Now a transient, the Bradenton man was convicted in 2014 of lewd and lascivious molestation of a 13-year-old in Manatee County.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement registry also lists the following sex offenders in the area:

• A 55-year-old male offender in the 4200 block of the 129th Street West in Cortez.

• A 52-year-old male offender in the 100 block of Crescent Avenue in Anna Maria.
