GREEN RIVER, Wyoming -- The Sweetwater County sheriff says authorities used Facebook to find a man in Oklahoma who is wanted on suspicion of failing to register as a sex offender.

Sheriff Rich Haskell says one of his detectives generated leads through Facebook to find the location of 42-year-old Henry William Sadberry. It was unclear what information authorities found on the social networking site that led them to Sadberry.

Haskell says U.S. Marshals arrested him Thursday in Erick, Okla. He is being held at the Beckham County jail and no bond has been set.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports that Sadberry was wanted on a 2007 warrant for allegedly failing to register as a sex offender.
