In March 2007, BAUMAN's parole officer reported that he had gone missing. Local police issued warrants for Child Pornography, Improper Photography/Visual Recording, Fail to Comply with Sex Offender Registration, and Probation Violation (original offense: Sexual Assault of Child). In May 2007, the US Marshals issued a warrant for Flight to Avoid Prosecution. In December 2010, they issued a second warrant for Fail to Register as a Sex Offender.

BAUMAN has met many women through Spanish-language matchmaking websites, including his 3rd wife, who he met through FriendFinder. He was last seen in the Austin, Texas area in the summer of 2010. He speaks fluent Spanish and reportedly has strong ties to Mexican/Central American immigrant communities in the Austin area.
