Authorities are searching for a 56-year-old man who allegedly molested his niece multiple times in the month of May, the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office said in a release.

The suspect, identified as Rosario Miguel Garcia, allegedly molested his 13-year-old niece multiple times during a two-week period in May of 2012. The girl told her mother, who confronted Garcia about the incidents. He fled the residence and has not been seen since.
