Washington Parish Sheriff Randy Seal is seeking the help of the public to locate a fugitive, Jessica Lynn Creel, a 34-year-old white female whose last known address was 217 Derbigney St. in Bogalusa. The attached photograph was taken in February 2015 when Creel was last in the Washington Parish Jail.

Creel is wanted for contempt of court, stemming from a hit-and-run accident in which an elderly Bogalusa man was the victim.

Any person who knows Creel’s current location is asked to call the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office at 985-839-3434. Callers may remain anonymous.

“Help us apprehend Jessica Lynn Creel,” Seal said. “She has a history of failing to appear in court and it is important that she be taken into custody. If you know where she is, please let us know. Jessica, if you are reading this, turn yourself in, because sooner or later we will find you and provide you with complimentary transportation to the Washington Parish Jail.”
