OTHELLO, WA (WCMH) — Police across multiple states are looking for a man accused of raping a 3-year-old girl.

In November of 2015, Juan Hernandez Zuniga was arrested for rape of a child in the first degree. He was booked into the Adams County Jail in Washington State.

Zuniga was later released on bail and was ordered to return to court four months later. Police say Zuniga failed to make his court appearance, and a felony warrant for his arrest was then issued.

Officials do not believe he’s still in Washington State. They believe he’s likely traveled south and may be hiding in California looking for a way to get into Mexico. Border Patrol has been notified.

Zuniga has brown eyes, is roughly 5’6″ and weighs about 180 pounds. Anyone who spots him is encouraged to call police immediately.
