To date, authorities have not linked Rivera to any other cases of sexual violence.

However, they activated his search order after he failed to fulfill his obligation to register as a sex offender in the community where he lives.

«We have received information indicating that he has been living with people around the Mustang apartments on 10NE Street in Ocala,» the police report details.

The Sheriff’s Office activated the search alert for two reasons. First, to remind Rivera García that «he is wanted for failing to comply with sexual offender registration requirements.»
