PITTSBURGH, PA - Sheriff William P. Mullen is asking for the public’s help in locating Wayne Webber, 38 years of age, formerly from the City of McKeesport.  Webber is wanted to two criminal bench warrants due to violations of probation/parole that were issued yesterday.

The original charges stem from a 2003 incident where he pled guilty to Aggravated Indecent Assault, Indecent Assault Person Less Than 13 Years of Age and Corruption of Minors, the following year.

Due to this guilty plea, Webber is a Megan’s Law Tier-3 Offender, meaning that he must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.   In 2014, Webber pled guilty to failure to register as is required as a sex offender.

Yesterday evening, sheriff’s deputies traveled to the last registered address for Webber in East Pittsburgh, which they found out he was no longer residing.  Deputies developed information that was now residing at an address located in the 400 block of Ohio Avenue in Clairton.  After deputies surrounded the home, they observed Webber driving down the street in a 2001 Blue Ford F-150 bearing the license plate of ZJR-9615.  Webber viewed sheriff’s deputies at the address and he immediately sped away and fled the area.  In addition to Webber, deputies viewed his current girlfriend, Melisa Manhart, 42 years of age from Clairton, in the passenger seat.

After Webber fled, deputies made contact with a resident of the home, Staci Conaway, 50 years of age.  She stated that she told Manhart and Webber that they could stay at the home until they got on their feet.  However, Conaway was made aware by Manhart that Webber is a convicted sexual offender and not registered at the address he was residing, so she was then charged with two counts of conduct related to sex offenders.

Sheriff’s deputies are seeking assistance in the apprehension of both Webber and Manhart.  Webber is described as 6’5” white male, weighing about 200 lbs with long brown hair, receding hairline and beard.  Additionally, Webber has tattoos on both of his arms.  Manhart is described as white female, 5’1” and 140 lbs with brownish/red hair and brown eyes.

If you know the whereabouts of either Webber or Manhart, please contact the Sheriff’s Office at 412-350-4714 or use the Anonymous Tip Sheet.
