He's been on the loose since December 8th when he failed to report his whereabouts to authorities.  His ankle monitor was found in a wooded area near Nunez.

Sheriff Kight says Murray was apparently working his way up U.S. Highway One.  He's being returned to Toombs County and will be prosecuted for violating parole and sex offender laws.  He was on parole for aggravated child molestation.
