Authorities are asking for the public's help in finding a convicted sex offender who had been having an inappropriate sexual relationship with a teenage girl while living with her family.
The Starr County Sheriff's Office is looking for 42-year-old Jorge Luis Dominguez on a sexual assault with a previous conviction charge.
Investigators told Action 4 News that Dominguez is a convicted sex offender but had a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old girl for about four weeks time.
Deputies said Dominguez was living with the girl's family at their Rio Grande City area home and that her parents consented to the relationship.
Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) records show that Dominguez is a sex offender who was sentenced to seven years in prison for a sexual crime back in 1999.
Investigators said Dominguez is a Mexican national and was deported but came back to the United States illegally.
Deputies said they first learned about the allegations when a Child Protective Services case worker visited the family's home.
No criminal charges have been filed against the girl's parents at this time but deputies said they are cooperating and that the case remains under investigation.
Investigators believe Dominguez may still be in the Starr County area driving a white mid-1990s Mercury Grand Marquis in the Las Lomas and Pisos area.
Any with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact the Starr County Sheriff TMs Office at (956) 487-5571.
