Sheriff’s office seeking help to locate Pender County sex offender

Brandon Giovanni Gil’s, a registered sex offender, has a warrant out for his arrest.

PENDER COUNTY — The Pender County Sheriff’s Office is seeking public assistance to locate a registered sex offender who has fled his current residence.

Brandon Giovanni Gil’s whereabouts are currently unknown, according to a press release. He was convicted of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor in 2021 and was ordered to register as a sex offender in North Carolina.

As a result, he is required to notify the sheriff’s office of any address changes. Gil has failed to do so, and a warrant is active for his arrest.

The sheriff’s office said Gil is known to frequent Surf City and northern Hampstead as well as Sneads Ferry in Onslow County. If seen, call 911 with any information.
