A fugitive convicted child molester listed on "America's Most Wanted" and the Oprah Winfrey Show may be living under an alias in Texas.

The FBI says David John Sprong Junior recently rented a house in Humble under the name John Ellison.

He's believed to have fled after the TV show "America's Most Wanted" featured him on Saturday.

The FBI says Sprong, along with his girlfriend Clara Lynette "Lyn" Rodaer and ten-year-old daughter Justine Sprong, may still be in the Houston area.

Sprong has been convicted of rape and lewd acts in California.

He skipped out on a one (M) million dollar bond in Sacramento, California, where authorities have charged him with several molestation cases.

Oprah Winfrey included Sprong on her list of child sexual predators for which she'll give a 100-thousand dollar reward for information leading to their arrests.
