      The Colquitt County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man involved in a 2011 murder and armed robbery that didn't show up for his sentencing date in March.

      Officials say Michael Jamar Russell of Camilla pled guilty to armed robbery as part of a plea deal in which he had to testify against his co-defendant, Phirronious Edwards, who was sentenced to life in prison.

      Officials say once it was Russell's turn to be sentenced, he never showed up and has been on the run since.

      Officials say Russell is considered dangerous and ask anyone who sees him to please call the Colquitt County Sheriff's Office investigative division at 229-616-7460.
