DALLAS (KRLD) - A $7,000 dollar reward is up for grabs if you can help lead police to a convicted sex offender.

37-year-old Jorge Luis Santamaria, one of Texas' 10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders, has been on the run since 2012. He was convicted of an incident with an 11-year-old boy in 2005.

DPS Lieutenant Lonny Haschel says, "Santamaria is 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs approximately 230 pounds. If anyone has information about him, we ask that you do not approach that person because he is considered to be dangerous."

His last known address was in Electra, Texas in Wichita County. He also has ties to Mexico and the Austin area. 

If you see him, you are urged to call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477).

You can submit a web tip through the DPS website by selecting the fugitive you have information about, and then clicking on the link under their picture. You can submit a Facebook tip by clicking the "SUBMIT A TIP" link (under the "About" section). All tips are anonymous regardless of how they are submitted and tipsters will be provided a tip number instead of using a name.
