Boone County Sheriff Tim Roberson reported at 7:00 p.m. last night that officers are still attempting to locate and apprehend the two suspects being sought for the murder of Tim Blackburn.

Efforts to locate the two around Grinder’s Ferry in Searcy County for the last 48 plus hours have been unsuccessful. The efforts consist of ground searches utilizing man power from multiple agencies, K-9’s and air support. Officers have also responded to a number of possible sightings reported from surrounding counties that were unfounded. Both suspects, Jason Lee Stockstill and Heather Dawn Scallion are considered armed and dangerous.

At this time there have been no confirmed sightings in the area and the Sheriff stresses that efforts to locate the two suspects and take them into custody will continue. If any person has information concerning their whereabouts, they are urged to contact law enforcement.
