EL PASO, TEXAS - A former sheriff's deputy and a fugitive are the focus of this week's Manhunt Monday.

Sheriff's officials said Peter Calzada and another ex-deputy kidnapped and raped a woman while on duty about 17 years ago.

In 1997, both men were convicted. Before Calzada could be sentenced, the authorities said he fled and has not been found.

In 2009, the sheriff's office received information about Calzada. It stated he had gained weight and had long hair. It was also mentioned that he was hiding in Mexico making a living as an instructor teaching English.

In 2012, they said they received another tip that indicated her was spotted at an airport facility in Arizona.

Calzada remains on the run, wanted for aggravated kidnapping.

He has been featured numerous times on Crime Stoppers of El Paso Most Wanted and remains wanted by the the U.S. Marshals service.

If you have any information -- you are asked to call Crime Stoppers of El Paso at 915-566-8477 (TIPS).
