Height: 5 feet, 10 inches
Tattoos: Left arm - cross, "LOVE," "PS;" right arm - "Lisa"
Wanted by FBI for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
Wanted by West Valley police for three counts of child sex abuse.
Griffin disappeared on Jan. 1, 1991, after he learned that he was being investigated by the West Valley Police Department for sexual abuse of a child.
He was charged with three counts of sexual abuse of a child, a second-degree felony, for allegedly abusing a 10-year-old girl, an 8-year-old girl and an 8-year-old boy. He allegedly threatened the children if they told anyone, police reports state. The Department of Corrections is also looking for Griffin because he has violated his parole. He was on parole from the Utah State Prison after he was convicted of attempted criminal homicide, kidnapping and burglary and ordered to serve two five-years-to-life sentences.
Griffin lived in Idaho when the sex-abuse crimes allegedly occurred last year. He apparently traveled to Utah for weekend visits. If he is not still in Utah, investigators believe he may have gone to Idaho or Texas.
