On May 7, 2020, a Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy was conducting a routine sex offender check on convicted sex offender, Lorenzo Mays, Jr., 42, of Lake Charles.
The deputy was advised by the homeowner at the address listed on Mays sex offender registration, that Mays did not live there. This puts Mays in violation of his sex offender registration requirements.
The Sex Offender detectives continued attempts to locate Mays but were unsuccessful.

Mays was convicted of carnal knowledge of a juvenile in 2005 in Calcasieu Parish. Mays was additionally convicted of failure to register as a sex offender in 2007 and again in 2014.
