The reward for 60 year old Mark Timothy McBride, a 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender has been increased.

The reward for this month's featured fugitive, has been increased to $8,000 for information leading to his capture if the tip comes in during the month of February. McBride is wanted for failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements, parole violation and probation violation. All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.

McBride has ties to the North Richland Hills/Fort Worth areas, and has previously lived in Pagosa Springs, Colorado.  He has been wanted since 2011 since absconding from North Richland Hills (his last known address).  Prior to that, he had expressed an interest in living and working in Alaska. McBride’s criminal history includes a 2006 conviction in Tarrant County on three counts of indecency with a child/sexual contact for incidents involving two 16-year-old girls.

McBride is 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs approximately 250

pounds. He may wear glasses. For more information and updates in the event of his arrest, see his wanted bulletin at their website.

One offender from the Texas 10 Most Wanted Program is featured each month in hopes the higher reward money from the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division will generate additional tips. The higher reward amount will only be paid if the tip comes in the same month the fugitive is featured. In 2017, Texas Crime Stoppers paid $61,000 in total rewards for anonymous tips that resulted in arrests.
