ODESSA - An accused child molester due in court on Wednesday is still on the run.

NewsWest 9 broke the story that 37-year-old Jose Salais cut his ankle monitor and took off.

He was set to appear in court on Wednesday after being charged with continuous sexual abuse of young children when three girls under 14 said he raped them over and over again.

Salais was out on bond awaiting trial but was required to wear an ankle monitor.

He cut the monitor off.

The U.S. Marshal's Office is helping to hunt down Salais.
