Jackson County Deputies Searching for Pisgah Man

Posted: Updated:

Deputies are looking for a man who ran into a marsh Friday when they tried to stop him. He hasn't been heard from since.

The Sheriff's office said in a news release there are warrants for the arrest of Charles Leon Liles, 33, Pisgah, but at this time they just want to know he is safe.

Authorities say a deputy stopped Friday to check two suspicious males standing behind the BP Quick Stop on Highway 35 and Gant Road in Scottsboro. They say Liles ran when the deputy stopped.

Tracking dogs were brought out and tracked Liles to an area near the water treatment plant on Highway 35, and he ran into a marshy area when the dogs approached. After two hours of searching, they called the search off.

Family members called the Sheriff's office Monday and said they hadn't heard from Liles since Friday. The Jackson County Rescue Squad and an Alabama State Troopers' helicopter searched for five more hours but still found nothing.

The sheriff's office is asking that anyone with knowledge of where Liles may be call them at (256) 574-2610.

The second man at the Quick Stop, Anthony Douglas Grey, 38, Pisgah, was arrested on outstanding warrants out of Rainsville.
