DALLAS – Department of Public Safety officials are spotlighting a Dallas man as one of its 10 most wanted sex offenders in an appeal for the public to help find him.
In 1988, Jimmy Ray McMillan sexually assaulted a 9-year-old girl he was babysitting in Dallas. It happened twice. He was arrested in 1990 and paroled in 1994.
McMillan, 42, moved to a residence outside Nacogdoches and registered as a sex offender. In June of last year, McMillan began filing paperwork and arranged to move to Fort Worth. Public records show that move never happened.
On March 28, the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office learned he fled. They filed a warrant for failing to comply with sex offender registration. He's been missing since.
McMillan is 5-feet-10-inches tall and weighs around 155 pounds. He has "TEX" tattooed on his right arm and "J+V" on his left. His abdomen and his right forearm are scarred. DPS officials say they consider him armed and dangerous.
If anyone helps authorities find and arrest him this month, they stand to gain a $13,000 reward. All tips are anonymous. He's the state's highlighted fugitive this month; the state adds more money to each person given this dubious honor.
October's most wanted sex offender, Thomas Lee Elkins, was arrested in Coppell after escaping a Houston-area halfway home.
While McMillan's last known residence was in Nacogdoches, he does have family in the Dallas area. He also could be in Springfield, Ohio and Hot Springs, Ark. He's worked construction, roofing and carnival jobs, DPS says.
His criminal history includes sexual assault, burglary, evading arrest and driving while intoxicated.
