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. wanted@us­
