The Del Norte County Sheriff’s Office is asking for assistance in locating a man they believe may be armed and dangerous.

Undersheriff Bill Steven said Monday that Mykah Mode, 21, has not been apprehended or turned himself in. He failed to show for sentencing Thursday in Del Norte Superior Court. There is a $50,000 warrant for his arrest.

A sheriff’s press release urged residents not to approach Mode directly, as he is known to carry weapons and should be considered dangerous.

Mode was out of jail on his own recognizance and was scheduled to be sentenced for possessing a loaded firearm and drugs.

The release asked citizens with information about Mode to call sheriff’s dispatch at 707-464-4191 ext. 6, or contact Sgt. Richard Griffin at 707-464-0670, or 707-951-0393.
