Convicted child predator, Daniel Coffey, is wanted for failing to register as a sex offender in Pierce County after being busted for using a kids game to prey on a young boy and girl he was babysitting. “He played ‘Truth or Dare’ with little kids, that’s considered ‘grooming’ to get them to perform sexual acts,” says Pierce County Det. Ed Troyer. “He was convicted and he went to treatment, but that was revoked, because he was caught with a handgun. So this is somebody who targets little children and also carries weapons around and could be armed.”

Coffey is 26 years old, 5’8” and weighs 155 pounds.

He’s wearing earrings in both ears for both mugshots, so it seems that’s part of his normal look.
