AMARILLO, TX - State authorities are looking for an Amarillo man listed on the state's top 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender's List.

Randall County District Attorney James Farren tells NewsChannel 10, Jose Manuel Vasquez has failed to register as a sex offender in Randall county, and he has been indicted on that charge.

The 50 year old has been on the run since this summer when a family member approached him about recent allegations of indecency and aggravated sexual assault against children. At that time,  he was on probation for sexual offenses towards a 9 and 12 year old.

It is believed that Vasquez has fled to Mexico.

"So whether he is found in Mexico, or he returns here to the United States, we will do everything in our power to bring him to trial." said Farrn

Farren stresses the sexual offender registration program keeps area children safe.

If you know where Vasquez might be, you are urged to call authorities at 1-800-252-TIPS.
