On Sunday, December 1, 2019 at approximately 2030 hours a Seward County deputy responded to a motorist assist in the area of Highway 34 and McKelvie Road. Once the deputy contacted the driver and sole occupant of the disabled vehicle, the driver identified himself as Matthew A. Williams. Williams was not able to provide identification to the deputy and was continuing to look for it when the deputy returned to the cruiser to verify Williams’ identity. Seward County Communications was able to confirm Williams identity and informed the deputy that there is an active misdemeanor warrant for Williams.
At this time, Williams fled the scene on foot towards a heavily wooded area.
A search of the area was conducted by the Seward County Sheriff’s Office and assisted by the Nebraska State Patrol K-9 unit. Williams has not been located at this time. Matthew A. Williams, 41 of Seward, NE is wanted for theft-unlawful taking, obstruct a peace officer, and fail to appear when on bail-misdemeanor. There is no immediate threat to public.
