The reward for Jimmy Ray McMillan, 42, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender and this month's featured fugitive, has increased to $13,000 for information leading to his capture if the tip comes in during the month of December.

McMillan is 5 feet 10 inches tall and was last known to weigh approximately 155 pounds. His tattoos include "TEX" on his right arm and "J+V" on his left arm, and he also has scars on his abdomen and right forearm. McMillan should be considered armed and dangerous.
