Reward offered in search for missing child rapist

DENVER (AP) - The U.S. Marshals Service says it's offering a substantial reward for help finding a convicted child rapist with a history of fleeing and refusing to register with authorities.

State and federal agents were searching for Eric E. Hartwell in the Denver area Monday, three days after he walked away from a halfway house in the city and cut his ankle monitor bracelet.

The 51-year-old was serving a three-year sentence for refusing to register in Colorado. He served time for failing to register in Washington and cut off his ankle bracelet a week after being paroled there in 2009. He was captured in Carrollton, Texas and sentenced to five years in federal prison in 2010 for failing to register but he was arrested in Colorado's Clear Creek County the following year.
