ALBANY, Ore. - A stolen car linked to a fugitive out of Washington state was recovered Sunday, but the suspect remains at large.

Derral "Kenny" Mosby, 36, was the subject of a heavily armed police manhunt near Ridgefield, Wash., last Thursday. He was not found.

Linn County Sheriff Bruce Riley said Mosby later called family from a payphone in the Salem or Albany area asking for help.

On Sunday, a car stolen from a Ridgefield, Wash., home was found in the Albany area, the sheriff said.

Mosby was last seen on a bicycle in the Knox Butte area near the Linn County Fairgrounds.

The wanted man has multiple felony warrants for his arrest, the sheriff said. Anyone with information on Mosby's location is asked to please call 9-1-1.

Mosby is described as being 6-foot-8 with multiple tattoos, including an image of the sun on his right arm, and a lady on his left arm.

Authorities in Lewis County, Wash., advised the sheriff to use caution because Mosby is often armed with a knife and firearm.
