Authorities asked for the public's help Thursday in locating a Starr County man wanted for indecency with a child.

The Starr County Special Crimes Unit says there have been several attempts to make contact with Arnoldo Benitez of Alto Bonito, but he has failed to respond.

Authorities say Benitez is a truck driver who travels across state lines, but is believed to be in the area.

The arrest warrant stems from a reported offense that took place while a child was in the care of Benitez's wife at their home, according to a news release from SCSCU.

The couple previously owned a child daycare center in Rio Grande City.

Anyone with information about Benitez's whereabouts is asked to contact any law enforcement agency.
