El Paso Sheriff still seeking rapist deputy, fugitive, ten years after flight

The El Paso County Sheriff has PR campaign dubbed "Manhunt Mondays" in which it seeks the public's help locating fugitives. This week the target is a former sheriff's deputy who's been on the lam for more than a decade. Reported the El Paso Times:
Peter Calzada
Peter Calzada, 54, has been missing since 2003 when he skipped out on his sentencing in a federal case.

Calzada and another former sheriff's deputy, Michael Duran, pled guilty to kidnapping a woman who was stranded and raping her while they were on duty in 1997.

Deputies have received numerous tips on Calzada's location since he went missing, but have been unable to catch him.

In 2009 it was reported that Calzada gained weight, grew his hair long and was teaching English deep in Mexico.

In 2012, a person called a tip that Calzada was in a Arizona airport, but quickly left after the person saw him.

There have even been sightings of Calzada in the Borderland area, but he has eluded capture despite being featured on Manhunt Monday every year.
