FUGITIVE WANTED IN SEATTLE November 1, 2013 -- A convicted child rapist has dropped off the map and stopped reporting. Seattle detectives think Robby Fowler could be in the Capitol Hill area or around Lake City. He was convicted in 2011 of three counts of rape of a child. Detectives say he was living at a family member's home in Rainier Valley but got kicked out – and he's since disappeared -- a real concern for police. “I was checking with all the detectives this morning about his arrest record. I mean it goes back a long ways. I mean he's got rape of a child, malicious mischief, theft in the third degree," says Ret. Det. Myrle Carner with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound. "He's lying to the cops every time they stop him, gives them false information. He’s been busted for theft in the 2nd degree, burglary, all kinds of things, even firearms. This is a guy we really want in custody because there's a very good chance he's out doing the same kind of things right now.” Robby Fowler is 24 years old, and has tattoos on both sides of his neck.
