AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A convicted sex offender on the Texas 10 Most Wanted fugitives list has been caught in Missouri.

The Texas Department of Public Safety on Thursday announced the arrest of 56-year-old Robert Houston Hayes. He was captured Feb. 25 at a rural home in Harrisonville, Missouri.

Hayes in October failed to arrive at a halfway house in El Paso after being released from a facility in Houston.

Records show Hayes in 1998 was convicted of sexual assault of an 11-year-old girl in Nebraska and sentenced to three years in prison.

Hayes lived in Amarillo and the Albuquerque, New Mexico, area before being sent to a Texas prison in 2013 for failing to register as a sex offender.

Hayes is wanted in New Mexico for armed robbery, aggravated battery and probation violation.
