The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) sent out a safety advisory Tuesday to warn of a convicted stalker who has attempted to contact and lure high school students in the New England area.
The MIAA stated in the message that Robert Gordon Slye has gone under the name of "Nicole Grace Smith" on Facebook and has a history of stalking wrestlers in the Danville, N.H., area dating back to 2000.
He has multiple stalking convictions and is using Facebook to pose as a 21-year-old female.
"According to police, Mr. Slye has become more brazen and recently tried to lure a New Hampshire wrestler to the Topsfield Fair," the MIAA message said. "It is important to note that investigators have found Massachusetts student-athletes among those who Mr. Slye may have attempted to contact through an alias Facebook account. This may not be exclusive to wrestling, so please inform ALL of your coaches, parents and students.
"Please be proactive as Mr. Slye is described as a computer genius and while today he lurks under ‘Nicole Grace Smith,' tomorrow it could be another alias," the advisory states.
Slye is 6 feet tall, weighs 200 pounds and has brown hair and hazel eyes. Along with stalking, his criminal history includes theft and a parole violation. He has also used the aliases Sara Doucette, Sara Camalari, Jess Pinsky, Vickie Barrington and Sara Hutchinson.
He has contacted high school athletes using Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram.
Nick Eddy, a coach at Salem High School in New Hampshire and a detective for the Windham Police Department, said Slye has been banned from all schools in the Windham School District as well as all sporting events.
Eddy is working with Salem's Police Department to have the same done in the Salem School District.
People with information should contact the Windham Police Department at 603-434-5577.
