MONTREAL -- A U.S. citizen convicted of child molestation has been turned over to U.S. authorities after being captured in Canada after a decade on the run.

Veronique Lalime, a spokeswoman for Canada Border Services Agency, said Thursday that Steven Dyer was transferred to the custody of U.S. officials on Wednesday. He was picked up by border service agents at Montreal's airport a day earlier.

Dyer is wanted in Arizona. After failing to show up for a court appearance in 2002, he was convicted of 13 counts of child molestation and faces a minimum sentence of 169 years in prison.

He had assumed the identity of a Canadian citizen and was living in Vancouver.

Dyer had been featured on the U.S. television show "America's Most Wanted."
