$3,000 reward offering for missing Chicago felon

CHICAGO – Authorities are offering a $3,000 reward for a Chicago man who disappeared from the city's downtown federal courthouse after a judge revoked his bond.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Chicago said Friday that 32-year-old Ignacio Torres Jr. has been the subject of an "intensive search."

The incident happened Tuesday when Torres apparently left the courthouse after his hearing. A judge ordered him taken into custody amid allegations he threatened to kill someone who'd cooperated with prosecutors in his drug case.

Federal prosecutors filed a motion late Thursday to forfeit Torres' $200,000 bond. The bond was secured by his parents' property on Chicago's North Side. There was no phone listing at the property.

Torres pleaded guilty in June to a federal cocaine possession charge and was to be sentenced next month.
