UPDATE: 1/11/21 5:00 P.M.

Authorities went to Jeremy O’Brien’s home on Hill Road to carry out a search warrant when he ran off into the woods Sunday night.

O’Brien has not been located since.

The man has two outstanding warrants - one for failure to appear on a domestic violence charge and another for breach of recognizance. Both are misdemeanors but Chief Deputy Mark Warden said he foresees felony charges coming out of the investigation.

Evidence of stolen property was also recovered at the scene.

Warden said, “I can tell you right now they recovered a stolen four-wheeler from Morgan County and we’re working back and forth with them in regards to that.”

Other evidence was found but Warden is not ready to comment on that.

If you have any information, contact the Washington County Sheriff’s Office or whatever jurisdiction you are in.

UPDATE: 1/11/21 11:30 A.M.

Authorities in Washington County called off a manhunt early Monday morning for a man who got away into the woods when they went to his home on Hill Road with a search warrant.

Jeremy O’Brien had arrest warrants for failure to appear on a domestic-violence charge and breach of recognizance, Chief Deputy Mark Warden of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office said Monday morning. Both of the charges are misdemeanors, but Warden said additional criminal charges are pending with other law-enforcement agencies. No information was available about those charges.

Authorities went to Hill’s home about 8:15 p.m. Sunday to search the residence, and that’s when Warden said O’Brien ran into the woods. The sheriff’s office, the Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources looked for O’Brien until about 1:30 a.m. before calling off the search, Warden said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
