The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office says a wanted sex offender who absconded last month has been found and arrested.

The Sheriff’s Office says David Lynn Johnson was arrested and booked into the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago, Illinois.

Authorities said Johnson absconded from the El Paso Transitional Living Center at 1650 Horizon Blvd.

They say Johnson was allowed to go to a medical appointment, but never returned to the facility.

The sheriff’s office said Johnson was wanted on a parole violation warrant and an additional charge of sex offender’s duty to register was forthcoming.

Johnson was on parole for an aggravated sexual assault of a young girl.
