PORT ANGELES — The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a registered sex offender who failed to report to the state Department of Corrections.

“Mirka has an extensive criminal history and is considered dangerous,” according to the release.

Anyone who sees Mirka is urged to call 9-1-1 immediately and anyone with information is urged to call 360-417-2459.

Whether Lynch, imprisoned for attacking police officers in metro Phoenix, will eventually stand trial in three killings in rural western Arizona is uncertain after a judge dismissed the triple-homicide case while chastising prosecutors for being unprepared. Judge Matthew Newman’s recent order said he dismissed the triple-homicide case in La Paz County against Lynch because prosecutors failed to have DNA evidence tested and prepare for trial while Lynch awaits trial in Maricopa County.
