    Authorities are looking for a Menlo Park child molester who they said skipped court sentencing Friday.

    Horacio Carlos Teran was found guilty in November of three felony child molestation counts for fondling and making a 10-year-old boy touch him.

    At the time, prosecutors asked that he be jailed without bail, but a San Mateo County Superior Court judge denied the request.

    His bail was raised from $50,000 to $300,000, which Teran posted on Nov. 27, according to the District Attorney's office.

    The court has issued a bench warrant for Teran's arrest. A defense attorney told the court Teran's wife reported her husband is missing.

    Teran and his wife lived next door to the victim, who was a friend of Teran's 6-year-old son.
