GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force is seeking tips in the search for a parole absconder who's wanted out of the Grand Rapids area.

25-year-old Richard Bernard Moody Jr. violated the conditions of his parole in late March after serving time for assault with intent to commit sexual penetration, and for failing to register as a sex offender.

Federal authorities say right now, he's also in non-compliance with his sex offender status.

Moody Jr. is 5'10", 203 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.  He also goes by the name 'Rich' and 'Moody'.

If you have any information that could help in locating Moody Jr., contact the U.S. Marshals at 1-877-926-8332 or the Michigan Department of Corrections tip line at 1-844-362-8477.
