Authorities seeking Va. woman for alleged murder
Suspect possibly killed mother in 2014
U.S. Marshals are seeking the public’s help in locating a Virginia woman authorities believe is responsible for her mother’s death in 2014.
On April 25, 2014, Alana Renee Cole allegedly stabbed her mother Lana Sears at her Beechwood Manor, Va., home. She was initially considered a person of interest but was later charged with homicide by Virginia’s Prince George County Police Department, according to the press release. In July 2014, the U.S. Marshals Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force joined the manhunt for Cole. Marshals hope with the public’s help they can bring her to justice.
“The U.S. Marshals and our state and local law enforcement partners are working tirelessly on this case,” task force member Inspector John Long said.
“We urge the public to contact us if they have any information regarding Al- ana Cole’s whereabouts.”
Cole was last seen in her mother’s Virginia home after the alleged crime, but authorities believe she could be anywhere now.
Cole is a 5-foot-7 white female weighing approximately 200 pounds with hazel eyes and brown hair. She has an interest in fishing, which may place her in locations near water. She also enjoys spending hours on the internet, according to the release.
“Because of the nature of her crime, Cole should be considered armed and dangerous,” Long said.
A reward is being offered for information leading directly to the fugitive’s arrest. Anyone with information is urged to contact the nearest U.S. Marshals Service office or the U.S. Marshals Ser vice Communications Center at 1-800336-0102, or email usms. firstname.lastname@example.org.
