The Danville Police Department continues to seek the whereabouts of 24-year-old suspect who fled from a traffic stop early Wednesday morning, January 14th.
At approximately 2:45 a.m., Cpl. Steven Ramirez attempted to conduct a traffic stop with a 2013 Toyota Corolla with Missouri license plate CW8 J4J on Boyd Street in Danville.
