EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. (KKTV) – Authorities in El Paso County need help locating two men who are each a person of interest in the case of a missing woman and both failed to register as a sex offender.
Photos of the wanted men are at the top of this article and were shared by the sheriff’s office Thursday night. They are considered armed and dangerous. If you have information on the location of Brendan Camous or Clinton Peterson, you’re asked to call 719-520-6666.
The case of a missing person they could be tied to is the 2016 disappearance of a woman in Nicholas County, Kentucky. Lori Feltz, 58, went for a short walk in Kentucky the day after Christmas in 2016. She never made it to her destination. Her family says she is mentally challenged and takes medicine daily for seizures. According to court documents, a huge search party was launched after Feltz went missing, and during that search, a Kentucky deputy said he found Camous and Peterson in a shack on a neighboring property. He did not realize they were wanted for failing to register. When the police came back with a search warrant, the men were gone.
The court documents say Peterson’s mother owned the property near where the woman went missing. She was reportedly in talks with prosecutors to have excavators search her land for the woman’s body, but that never happened.
Camous is 5′6″ tall, weighs 160 lbs with brown hair and brown eyes. He has two felony and one misdemeanor arrest warrants for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender, Failure to Comply with a SAC (Sex Assault on a Child) Sentence and Failure to Appear on a Driving Under the Influence charge.
Peterson is 5′8″ tall, weighs 175 lbs with red hair and blue eyes. He has three felony and one misdemeanor arrest warrants for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender and Failure to Comply with Probation.
They may be homeless and living in shacks in the El Paso, Teller and Northeastern Colorado areas.
“We are asking our community not to approach the suspects nor to attempt to make contact,” the sheriff’s office added in the release.
