Alton police are looking for a pair of men who may have skipped town after failing to register as sex offenders. Warrants were issued this week for 20-year-old Roger Lawver and 40-year-old Robert Schallenberg. Police say both are now listed as non-compliant.
Alton Public Information Officer Emily Hejna says she checks the registry every day.

She says there are 134 sex offenders that are required to register in the city. While Hejna says most who are non-compliant seem eager to update their status with minimal consequence, she believes Lawver and Schallenberg are non-compliant by choice. If you’ve seen either of the men, you are asked to call Alton Police. The number is 463-3505.
