The Scotts Bluff County Sheriff's office received information that Evans might be staying at a residence near Henry. Evans is wanted on felony warrants out of Colorado. He may have escaped to a wooded area along the North Platte River. Officers have followed up on leads to various places and have not yet found Evans.

Scotts Bluff County Lt. Jeff Chitwood said, "We've heard he's been in and out of the area but are not sure how great that information is. I would encourage anyone who has any information on him to please call us."
