The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) is looking for a Level 2 predatory offender from Rochester.
Donald Dean Christiansen, 62, removed his GPS monitoring device on June 1 and failed to return to his placement location in Rochester, the BCA says.
He was last seen at the Target store at 4611 Maine Ave. SE in Rochester.
Officials have issued a felony escape custody warrant for Christiansen.
According to the Minnesota Department of Corrections, when Christiansen was 20, he sexually assaulted a toddler he was babysitting. He also has a history of sexual contact with known and unknown teenagers, with the department noting he "provided victims with intoxicants prior to offense and took advantage of their vulnerable state to gain compliance."
Anyone who knows where Christiansen may be is urged to call 911 or the BCA at 651-793-7000.
