Michigan school shooting and search for Ethan Crumbley’s parents
When asked if Ethan Crumbley’s parents are missing, Oakland County, Michigan, Sheriff Michael Bouchard told CNN that is “correct.”
“If they think they are going to get away, they are not,” Bouchard told CNN’s Victor Blackwell Friday.
Bouchard said officers are working with FBI partners and the US Marshal Service. CNN has reached out to both for comment.
The Crumbleys’ attorney was working with law enforcement to make themselves available for arrest once charges were announced, according to the sheriff, who added that the couple is no longer communicating with the attorney.
“It’s indicative their intent to flee,” Bouchard said.
When asked if Bouchard is concerned the couple may be armed, he acknowledged “anything is possible,” and he cautioned people should not approach the couple.
Every available resource is dedicated to locating them, the sheriff said.
The couple were not under surveillance until “it got closer to last night,” when charges were pending and detectives began the process of monitoring them. There was no early surveillance on them prior because no charges were pending.
Bouchard could not answer if the couple was in Michigan when they appeared by video during their son’s arraignment earlier this week.
When asked about the exact time his department last knew the location of the Crumbleys, the sheriff said, “I’d have to actually talk to the detectives to find out where they last communicated with them or where they last had them. I mean, this obviously just recently happened.”
