ECSO Still Searching For Man On The Run Since November Molino Manhunt

January 11, 2019

UPDATE: Colby Chase Myrick has been arrested. Click here for details.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office is continuing their search for a Cantonment man that was the focus of a manhunt two months ago in Molino.

Colby Chase Myrick, 27, has active warrants for two counts of possession of a weapon or ammunition by a convicted felon, carrying a concealed firearm, vehicle theft, damage to property, larceny and a probation violation.

On November 12, an Escambia County Sheriff’s Office lieutenant got behind a white pickup truck pulling a utility trailer with no tag. Before the deputy initiated a traffic stop, the vehicle pulled into the yard of a residence on Molino Road just east of Nicholson Drive. A few minutes later, the resident called the Sheriff’s Office to report that a male had ran from the truck toward a wooded area.

Deputies responded and a female that was in the vehicle identified the male as Myrick.

Escambia County deputies and a K-9 team from the Century Correctional Institution searched the area south of Molino Road and east of Highway 95A for several hours. Their search continued well into the afternoon and progressed at least as far south as Meharg Road.

During the search, deputies located a gun in the woods that they believe Myrick left behind, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Anyone with information on Myrick’s whereabouts is asked to contact the ECSO at (850) 436-9620 or to remain anonymous call Gulf Coast Crime Stoppers at (850) 433-STOP. Crime Stoppers callers can be eligible for a reward of up to $3,000.
