Police received a “credible tip” last week that Rodriguez, 44, was seen riding a bike on Highway 16 and traveling south from Jourdanton to Freer.

“AT NO TIME was anyone ever able to confirm this subject was actually in the area and that stretch of highway was thoroughly and constantly patrolled,” police said in a Facebook post on June 7. “Out of an abundance of caution the public was notified to be on the lookout for this individual.”

Jourdanton Chief of Police Eric Kaiser told KSAT that there is a warrant out for Rodriguez’s arrest from Freer police but that his actual location was unknown when police alerted the public to be on the lookout.
