AG Looking for Child Support Evader in Bryan

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott Thursday asked Bryan residents to be on the lookout for Child Support Evader Marcus Snodgrass, who owes more than $87,000 for the care of three children from Harlingen.

Investigators with the Attorney General's Child Support Division believe Snodgrass, who was named a Child Support Evader in December 2004, is living somewhere in Bryan.

Born April 16, 1951, Snodgrass is a Caucasian male with brown hair and blue eyes. He is 5' 11" and weighs approximately 175 pounds. His only distinguishing marks are a large nose and a scar on his scalp.

"Marcus Snodgrass has harmed his children by refusing to pay child support. Please help me hold this Child Support Evader accountable by providing information that will lead to his arrest," said Attorney General Abbott. "Parents who avoid their responsibilities must be punished."

Anyone with information about Snodgrass should call 1-866-EVADERS (382-3377) or e-mail Photos of all missing Evaders are available on the Attorney General's Web site at

In 1996, Snodgrass was found in contempt of court and given a suspended jail sentence for disobeying a legal order to pay child support. An arrest warrant was issued in January 1997, after Snodgrass failed to appear at a court hearing to address his noncompliance.

Snodgrass has not made a child support payment in nine years. Due to missed payments and interest that accrues on unpaid child support, he now owes more than $87,000.
