Authorities in Tulsa, Oklahoma have captured a fugitive sex offender from McDonald County.

Richard Rogers walked out of a Nosho hospital where he was being treated for heart problems on Monday and was driving to his daughters house in Tulsa by his girlfriend Diane Thompson.

Cops busted Richard Rogers on February 26 for failure to register as a sex offender out of Arkansas. McDonald County Sheriff Robert Evenson says that Rogers had been living in the Rocky Comfort area under an assumed name for the last two years.

Rogers was transported on Sunday to Freeman Hospital in Neosho where he was being treated for elevated blood pressure and heart problems.

Evenson says he hopes to have more information on Rogers capture available tomorrow.
