Authorities in Franklin County are intensifying efforts to locate 16-year-old Emily High, who was reported missing on May 16. In a distressing development, new details have emerged linking the disappearance to a man named Wright, who is a registered sex offender.

Wright, described as a white male standing at 5 feet 11 inches tall, with black hair and brown eyes, weighs approximately 120 pounds. Notably, he bears a distinctive rose tattoo on his right hand, satanic symbols on his left hand, and the name “Brynnlee” inked on his left wrist, according to information provided by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office OffenderWatch sex offender management program.

The Ohio database identifies Wright as a “Tier 1 Sex Offender.” He was convicted on June 23, 2022, with the victim being a 15-year-old girl who had connected with him through social media.
