Law enforcement personnel say they still have not caught up with Nolan Travis, who escaped into the woods near Major Moore’s Campground after a high-speed car chase Wednesday. Sheriff’s Commander Bill Steve said Friday morning that no new information had come in regarding Travis.

Deputies and State Parks officers chased Travis up Rowdy Creek Road to a spot about 18 miles inland before a stop was executed.

Steven said Travis was wanted for parole violation and had been previously sentenced to four years in prison on drug charges.

State parks police arrived at the scene with a K9 to assist at about 4 p.m. Wednesday, but the dog could not pick up a scent to follow. Authorities continued to search.

Steven said the area is about five miles from the nearest campground and campers were made aware of the situation at the time.

Travis is described as being a white male adult, 5’8” tall, 150 pounds, but no clothing description could be provided.

A passenger in the car, Bonnie Steele, was booked into jail for resisting or obstructing and later released.

Anyone who sees Travis or has information about his location should call Sheriff’s Dispatch at 707-464-4191.
