A registered sex offender is believed to be on the run in Missouri while accused of holding his girlfriend captive in a wooden box for four months.

James B. Horn, Jr., 47, is wanted by Sedalia police ever since a "hysterical" woman escaped from her home Thursday evening and made a beeline to a neighbor's home for help, KCTV reported.

There the woman called 911 and reported Horn as having "routinely locked her in a wooden box inside the residence where they lived," according to a news release.

"Upon responding to her residence, officers did observe a large wooden box consistent with what the female described," it continued.
