This Friday, we're looking for your help to track down a fugitive in our state

Wanted: Arturo Garcia Resendiz
Charges: Probation violation on amended charges of attempted child molestation

On July 10, 2014, Arturo Garcia Resendiz was with his wife as she was the babysitter of a kindergarten aged child. She scolded Resendiz and told the child's parents that Resendiz touched the girl in an inappropriate and sexual manner. 

The child told police that she was laying down watching television when Resendiz started tickling her over her clothes and then under her clothes.

Resendiz was arrested on July 30, 2014 and after serving six months in the county jail was released on lifetime probation. 

His probation began on January 8, 2015, and he last checked in with the probation office in February of 2016. He has been missing ever since.

Resendiz is 63 years old, 5-feet 11-inches tall, 170 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.
