    Texas Department of Safety investigators have been searching for a registered sex offender who they say left a halfway house and cut off his 24-hour tracking device.

    They say 33-year-old Billy Twayne Gibson fled the Wayback House in Dallas early Saturday.

    Authorities issued an arrest warrant for him. Failing to comply with civil commitment requirements is a third-degree felony.

    The 6-foot-3, 250-pound Gibson has a criminal history that includes aggravated sexual assault, aggravated robbery, unlawful carrying of a weapon and compelling prostitution by force or threat.
