KANSAS CITY —The Federal Bureau of Investigation has issued a warning about a suspect now on the Top Ten Most Wanted list who is believed to be in Missouri.
On Thursday, Donald Eugene Fields II, 58, wanted for the alleged sex trafficking of at least one child in Missouri, was added to the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, according to a statement from the agency.
The crimes occurred between 2013 and 2017. A federal arrest warrant was issued for Fields on December 8, 2022, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri after he was charged with sex trafficking of children.
According to a special agent in the FBI’s St. Louis Division, “Fields has allegedly demonstrated a pattern of abusing minor females in his circle that are entrusted to his care, manipulating them to earn their trust quickly and using their own resources to take advantage of them.”
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $250,000 for information leading to Fields’ arrest. This amount reflects the FBI’s decision in May 2023 to increase the reward from up to $100,000 to up to $250,000 to aid in capturing individuals on the the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.
Fields is 58 years old and has brown hair and hazel eyes. He is between 6’0” and 6’4” tall and weighs about 235 pounds. He is a white male with scars on his chest, his groin, his left calf, both legs, and both knees. Fields has worked as a tree trimmer, a resale shop owner, and an independent used car dealer.
Fields was last known to reside in Missouri; he has family there and in Kentucky. He is known to visit casinos and has traveled to Florida in the past.
