GOLINDA, Texas (KWTX) - Falls County Sheriff Joe Lopez said Fabian Wayne Beckham, a man who escaped from custody on May 19, remains on the lam, and an arrest warrant has been issued for Beckham’s arrest.

Deputies suspended the manhunt for Beckham that Friday night because of thunderstorms in the area, the Falls County Sheriff’s Office said at the time. The search for the fugitive continues in Falls County.

At the time he escaped, the suspect was last seen headed “south through the woods” towards Highway 77 in Golinda.

Beckham is described as a white man about 5-foot-10, weighing 205 pounds, with a light beard.

He was reportedly wearing dark colored shorts, but was barefoot, and shirtless, the last time he was seen.

“He may still be handcuffed in front of his chest,” the sheriff’s office said at the time of the escape. “If anyone sees him, do not approach. Contact 911 immediately.”

No further information about the suspect was provided.
