On Wednesday, Phillips’ friends and family issued a statement saying they “are understandably frustrated that Ty Hoffman has not been captured.”

“We do know, however, that the net is quickly tightening around both him and anyone who may be aiding him,” the statement said. “We ask the public to closely examine photos of Ty shown in the media, to be on the lookout for him and to immediately call 911 if you think you may have seen him.”

Police continued to caution the public that Hoffman should be “considered armed and dangerous” and asked anyone who might see him or have information to call 911. A reward fund for Hoffman’s arrest has reached $25,000.
