AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -

A convicted felon from Houston on the Texas Department of Public Safety's 10 Most Wanted sex offender list has been caught in California after months on the run.

DPS on Wednesday listed 59-year-old John Michael Enard as "captured" on its online offender list. Records show Enard fled from a Houston halfway house last January and he was wanted for parole violation.

Authorities say Enard was located last Friday at a homeless shelter in Los Angeles. Investigators say a tip led to Enard and a reward of up to $3,000 will be paid.

Enard was considered a sexually violent predator at high risk to commit another crime. His convictions include aggravated rape-sexual assault and burglary of a habitation with intent for rape and burglary.
