KINGFISHER, Oklahoma -- U. S. Marshals are assisting OSBI and Sheriff's Deputies in Kingfisher in looking for Matthew Mallory, a lifetime registered sex offender who's on the run with his 14-year-old niece, Ariel Mallory.
They may be headed to Missouri. It is possible Matthew Mallory will look for work on a chicken farm. The two left Kingfisher County Wednesday.
Authorities say Mallory may also have contacts in Amarillo, Texas, and in Indiana.
"We believe Mallory is armed and with past criminal history, he has extensive criminal history that include weapons, assault, violence toward law enforcement and sex crimes against children," U. S. Marshal Marc Crawford said.
An arrest warrant has been filed for Mallory for child abandonment of a child under 10 and failure to register as a sex offender.
Mallory is traveling in a maroon Ford Taurus with tag number 948-GPL.
Mallory has a full body tattoo.
If anyone recognized either of the Mallory's, please contact the OSBI at 1-800-522-8017.
