Jose Macias Arebalo was aired on the May 24th, 2003 episode of America's Most Wanted as a commercial break case. Below is the archived description of the case:
Mexican national Jose Macias Arebalo is suspected of molesting and raping his six- and seven-year-old stepdaughters in April of 2000.
According to the Butler County Sheriff's Office, Arebalo and his cousin moved from Mexico to the United States in 1993 and settled in the town of Hamilton, Ohio. Three years later, he married his wife and moved in with her and her two daughters.
On April 23, 2000, deputies say that Arebalo's wife was awaken in the middle of the night by the sound of her older daughter crying. When she entered the room, she found Arebalo kneeling over her bed. He told his wife he was putting a blanket on the girl. Later that day, the girl confided to a family member that Arebalo had been molesting her.
When Arebalo's wife confronted him, he denied the accusation and left the home. He was never seen or heard from again. The girls were taken to the hospital where it was discovered that both of them had been sexually abused.
Thoughts? As far as I know, he's still at large as of this posting date (9/12/2015). Please let us know if you have proof otherwise. Unfortunately, not much info can be find online. One post lists his age at 32, but I'm assuming that's from years ago.
