Records show Urango has a 2010 conviction for aggravated sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child-sexual contact in a Grayson County incident involving an 11-year-old boy.

Urango was released on parole in June of 2016 and was living at a halfway house in Dallas before he disappeared a year later.

DPS says a $5,000 reward will be paid to the tipster who provided information that lead to Urango’s arrest.
