Flurry of email over reported sex offender sighting

Posted by Geeky Swedes on February 27th, 2009

Email warnings are circulating around Ballard about another reported sighting of a man who matches the description of a level 3 sex offender. A parent reported seeing the man one block away from Loyal Heights Elementary. Parent-teacher groups from Loyal Heights, Whittier Elementary and Adams Elementary as well as the principal at Salmon Bay have passed along the warning, identifying the man as Keith Gerald McFadden and the vehicle as a red Toyota pickup with the plate A05513V (search for that name here for more). The same warning was circulated in December after the man was reportedly seen driving around the Whittier Elementary area. Keep in mind, this is an unconfirmed sighting, no criminal activity was observed and McFadden is not wanted by police. But parents are asked to keep their eyes open.
