Jeramy Adam Ball

EUGENE, Ore. - A predatory sex offender who failed to check in with his parole officer and vanished has been captured, Lane County officials said.

Lane County Parole & Probation asked for the public's help Monday locating Jeramy Ball, who parole officers described as a predatory sex offender who failed to check in with his parole officer.

The department said Tuesday that Ball was captured earlier that morning.

Ball has attacked people both known and unknown to him in the past.

Parole & Probation said they have no reason to believe he has reoffended at this time. The community’s assistance is being sought due to Ball’s history as a dangerous offender, the department said.

His most recent offense was the rape of a 46-year-old woman. He has a history of sex crimes dating back to age 9, parole and probation said.
