The parents of the Michigan school shooting suspect are being wanted in a hunt, but two lawyers say they aren’t on the run.

The parents of the Michigan school shooting suspect are being wanted in a hunt, but two lawyers say they aren't on the run.

“On Thursday night we contacted the Oakland County prosecutor to discuss this matter and to advise her that James and Jennifer Crumbley would be turning themselves in to be arraigned,” the statement from attorneys Shannon Smith and Mariell Lehman said. “Instead of communicating with us, the prosecutor held a press conference to announce charges.” The statement added: “They are not fleeing from law enforcement despite recent comments in media reports.”
A law enforcement official told CNN the parents withdrew $4,000 from an ATM in Rochester Hills, Michigan, on Friday. Rochester Hills is about 10 to 15 miles from Oxford. Law enforcement had been able to track the couple’s whereabouts by cell phone pings but can no longer do so as the couple’s cell phones are turned off, the official said.

(CNN) — Hours after a prosecutor announced involuntary manslaughter charges against the parents of Ethan Crumbley, the 15-year-old accused of killing four classmates at a Michigan high school, authorities reported the parents had vanished. The US Marshals Service announced late Friday that it was assisting local officials in their search for the couple and has offered a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to their capture. However, two attorneys who claim to represent the couple made a statement claiming that the Crumbleys had fled town for their safety and would return for an arraignment.

Prosecutors were worried about the couple evading law enforcement because they didn’t have ties to their community, and officials had trouble locating the Crumbley couple once their son was being arraigned, the source added. The parents’ arraignment had been scheduled for late Friday afternoon. But as of Friday evening, the parents were still missing, according to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office in Michigan. Undersheriff Michael McCabe told CNN a sergeant with the county’s fugitive task force had spoken with one of the attorneys, who said she had not talked with the parents. The undersheriff said he is confident the couple will be found, and it’s a “matter of when.”

Sheriff Michael Bouchard earlier told CNN that law enforcement had not talked with James and Jennifer Crumbley, but their attorney had told officials if there were charges she would make arrangements for them to be arrested. He said the attorney had attempted to reach the parents by phone and text without success. When asked by CNN whether the parents are missing, Bouchard said, “correct.” “If they think they are going to get away, they are not,” he said. James and Jennifer Crumbley, the parents of accused Oxford High School shooter Ethan Crumbley. The couple weren’t under surveillance until “it got closer to last night” when charges were pending and detectives began the process of monitoring them, Bouchard said. There was no early surveillance on them before that because no charges were pending.
