PLYMOUTH - Authorities have been urged to use caution while searching for a rural Plymouth man who is considered armed and dangerous.

The Plymouth Police Department reported there was a potentially suicidal male early Sunday morning at 1784 Baseline Road. When the sheriff's deputy arrived, the mother of the person in question, Vernon W. Felty, 31, said her son wasn't there and she hadn't seen him since Friday, Major Greg Englund said.

Two days later, the deputy spoke to the mother again. She said she feared Felty, who had a gun when he left home on foot Monday, might commit suicide, Englund continued.

"We believe the person is suicidal and is considered armed and dangerous," he said.

The mother declined to be interviewed this morning when reached by telephone.

Felty is a white man who is 5-feet, 9 inches tall and weighs about 140 pounds. He has blue eyes and brown hair. It's unknown what he was last seen wearing.

"We believe he is still in the area, possibly in the Willard, New Haven (or) Plymouth area. He has relatives in the area," Englund said.

Felty is wanted on a failure to appear warrant from Ashtabula County. A bench warrant was issued Jan. 24, 2007 in Western County Court in Geneva in connection with Felty failing to appear for a preliminary hearing on charges of a carrying a concealed weapon, improper handling of a firearm and receiving stolen property, said a spokeswoman with the Ashtabula County prosecutor's office. The charges originally were filed 20 days before the hearing.

If residents have information about Felty's whereabouts or have seen him, they are encouraged to call the Huron County Sheriff's Office at (419) 663-2828.

Are you all running or mayor of imadickland? I'll be damned if you people that leave comments on these stories don't lead the most prefect self righteous lives. You make all "us common folk" seem like trash! We knell before your almightyness..

hmmmm (Anonymous)

its funny how ppl always just ASSume someone is on heroin even if one has NEVER met the person....

to hmmmmm (Anon...

I agree with you. But there are a lot of low lifes out there who ASSume a lot of things, or don't think about what they say. They have no life and they look for one by posting comments, on stories like this one, to feel good about themselves.

Just goes to show just how smart you are, that high GED really does speak volumes!

Still Luv'n Thi...

First and foremost, do anyone of you even know this man? And think about how you would react if the story was a little different. Your prayers would be with the family but instead all you want to do now it be a hipacrit. Take a look in the mirror and think about how you would feel if this is someone that you loved. If you were the people who spent hours making phone calls, having sleepless nights, would you want to get online and read an article like this, and to top it off read your selfish comments. So next time an article is printed out about someone who is missing and may or may not want to commit suicide please think before you decide to go ranting and raving that he is on drugs.

Deputies looking for a good meal. Don't eat at BERRYS.

Brite Idea (Ano...

Let's get Monk on the case!!He can solve everything!!

mug shot (Anonymous)

it would help if we knew who to watch out for. Why not post a picture of this man with the story. Not all of us proclaim to know everything about everyone like most on here making comments.

wow (Anonymous)

see that the heroin story is gone and the commenting is no longer allowed. Make a comment about dalton's dealing drugs and getting ssi and the article is back paged.

to wow (Anonymous)

actually u can still comment, they just aren't putting it out there for all to see. should still be able to until tomorrow, Thursday the 24th. Just type in "the truth about heroin" that should put u back to the page.

I just looked (...

cannot comment anymore

just know him. ...

comment to still luv'n this man.

first and formost,YES I do know this man.

I have with my own eyes seen him abuse a lady by throwing

her to the ground, dragging and chocking and the list goes

on. Check Police reports in Plymouth.

Know for a FACT he does not take care of his responsibilities, he takes off and hides from them.

He runs from his own actions.. example "Failed to appear for preliminary hearing" If he is as good as you say why the WARRANT?

And YES i have seen with my own eyes his suicidal comments!! WROTE BY HIS HAND!

So if you know this man like you say you do "OPEN YOUR EYES,HE NEEDS HELP!!!"before somebody gets hurt. Then what

will you tell their parents. Ladies speek up..

Oh To Huron County why are you letting this man run FREE?

DONT YOU PICK PEOPLE UP FOR WARRANTS? ADDRESS IN PAPER.

to; I just look...

I just looked also and yes, you still can comment. I just did under the name of heroin, look for yourself. Probally not after tomorrow though.
