Michael Risinger-Peel, 41, is wanted for 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a child.

BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. — A convicted sex offender is on the run after arrest warrants were issued for him. Michael Risinger-Peel, 41, is wanted for 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a child.

The Boulder County Sheriff's Office (BCSO) said the Colorado Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) received information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) that Risinger-Peel possessed child sexual abuse material. 

On March 30, deputies executed a search warrant at Risinger-Peel's home located in the 1900 block of Sumac Place in Longmont and found more evidence. It appears Risinger-Peel moved out of his home, quit his job and he has not yet been located, deputies said. 

Anyone with information on where Risinger-Peel may be, is asked to call Det. Katie Tkach with the Boulder County Digital Forensics Lab at 303-441-3646.

Risinger-Peel is described as being 6-foot 1-inch tall and weighs around 160 pounds. He has black hair and green eyes. According to the Colorado Sex Offender Registry, Risinger-Peel has numerous tattoos and wears prescription glasses.
