Deputies responded to the area of Conrad Place and Hemmingway Place to search for Mark Anthony McKay, a 34-year-old male, 6’ 3’’ tall and weighing 200 pounds. McKay has several warrants for his arrest, including outstanding warrants from Arkansas and Texas. He is also wanted for violating the terms of his parole.
Deputies saw McKay driving a white 2012 Ford Fusion sedan with Arkansas tags. During the search, McKay got away but deputies saw him again near the area of 7 Street and Santa Fe avenue.
