BOULDER, Colo. — Boulder Police issued a warrant for a sex assault suspect for a failure to comply with bond conditions Friday.

Boulder Police reported that Michael Riley, 66, was required to check in regularly with court officials to provide his whereabouts, but had not been seen or heard from since 7:30 a.m. Friday.

Riley is on trial for a sex assault case. The jury was deliberating when he disappeared.

Riley is described as a white male with blue eyes and gray hair, standing 6-foot-1 and weighing 195 pounds.

He may be driving a white 2011 Nissan Rogue SUV, with Arkansas license plates. Police believe the car would be packed with various belongings needed for a trip.

Anyone with information about Riley is being urged to dial 911. Police are also urging residents not to approach Riley if you see him.

This isn’t the first time an individual suspected or convicted of sex assault in Boulder has gone missing. Most-recently and perhaps most-infamously, Calvin Nagy, who is currently No. 1 on Colorado’s most wanted sex offender list, skipped town after being allowed to post bond despite being convicted of felony sex assault.

Nagy remained as large as of Friday.
