A Missouri sex offender search can be performed by anyone through the sex offender registry webpage maintained by the Missouri State Highway Patrol. All sex offenders are required to register, providing their personal information, place of residence, and a recent photograph to the online registry. In Missouri most sex crimes require registration throughout their lifetime. An online search of the registry will either yield the information of an individual offender, or it will enable the researcher to review a list of offenders residing within a particular area.
