The Denver Post reports that Fureigh used an alias, John Busby, to buy land in Costilla County to escape the warrant for his arrest. He and a retired preacher disappeared on the same day in 2008, the newspaper said.

If you see Fureigh, or know any information about him, call the El Paso County Sheriff's Office at (719) 390-5555.

Fureigh is one of Colorado's top 10 most wanted sex offenders. See the full list on the Colorado Bureau of Investigation's website.
