Kentucky native added to FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list
ST. LOUIS (WXIX) - A man who was born in Kentucky, and is wanted for allegedly sex trafficking at least one child, was placed on the Federal Bureau of Investigations’ Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list Thursday.
According to his wanted poster, Donald Eugene Fields II, 58, attempted to “recruit, entice, harbor, transport, provide, obtain, maintain, patronize and solicit a person whom he believed was under the age of 18 and would be caused to engage in a commercial sex act.”
The FBI says the alleged incident happened in Missouri between 2013 and 2017.
A federal arrest warrant was issued for Fields on Dec. 8, 2022, in St. Louis, after he was charged with sex trafficking of children, the FBI wanted poster says.
Federal investigators say Fields was last known to be living in Franklin County, Missouri. He also has family in Missouri and Kentucky.
In addition, they say he is known to visit casinos and has traveled to Florida in the past.
Fields should be considered armed and dangerous, investigators say.
Investigators say Fields is between 6 feet and 6 feet-4 inches tall and weighs between 219 to 235 pounds.
He has hazel eyes and scars on his chest, groin, his left calf, and both knees, according to his wanted poster. It also says Fields has a tribal print tattoo on his right shoulder.
He may go by other aliases, such as Don Fields, Donald Eugene Fields Jr. and Eugene Fields, according to federal investigators.
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $250,000 for information that leads to Fields’ arrest.
Anyone with information about Fields may call the FBI’s tipline at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324), their local FBI office, the nearest American Embassy or Consulate, or online at tips.fbi.gov.
