PINAL COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Authorities said a convicted sex offender has been targeting Arizona children online and they need helping finding additional victims.

The Pinal County Sheriff's Office said 44-year-old Larry Lewis Hudson, of Oregon, has been accused of luring girls in Arizona, Texas, Illinois and Louisiana to engage in sexual activity online.

Hudson was convicted of sexually abusing a 5-year-old girl in 2001 and failure to register as a sex offender in 2005.

According to KOIN 6, Hudson was arrested by federal authorities in late March on two counts of child pornography, two counts of attempt to transmit obscene material to a minor and one count each of attempted online enticement of a minor and transmitting obscene material to a minor.

"Hudson had accounts on sites like Meetme, Meet24, and Kik," the PCSO said in a Facebook video. "He used screen name 'hottgu' or 'Brian Johnson' and his emails started with 'bigtlarry' and 'hotbrian8.'"

Hudson's targeted girls between 13 and 16 and told them he was in his 20s, according to the PCSO.

Authorities said one victim was a developmentally disabled 16-year-old Illinois girl and another was a 14-year-old from Louisiana.

The PCSO said Hudson sent inappropriate pictures of himself and child porn to an detective, who was posing as teen.

"Hudson attempted to lure our undercover detective to engage in sexually explicit conversations," the PCSO said. "Hudson had similar conversations with another undercover detective in Texas."

The PCSO said they believe Hudson's has more victims in Arizona.

"If your child is a victim or if anyone has any further information about potential contact between Hudson and any child, please inform the FBI or your local law enforcement agency."

If you have any information, you can contact the FBI Portland Division 503-224-4181 of the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office at 520-866-5111.
