(ROANOKE, Va.) -- The Marine who's wanted in the murder of his mother's boyfriend is still on the run and there have been no confirmed sightings of Michael Brown since the day his R.V. was found in Roanoke, prompting the shutdown of all Roanoke city schools. That was last Thursday, November 14.

Brad Sellers, acting marshal for the Western District of Virginia, says that they are following up on many leads on a daily basis. In fact, he says the volume of calls they're getting is bordering on unmanageable. 

He does caution that people should say something when they see something, but don't wait 24-48 hours to let them know about it. Make sure you call right away.

In addition, Sellers sasy nobody should be providing a safe place for Brown. If they are, they could potentially be facing criminal charges as well. 

There was speculation that a weapon found by U.S. Marshals office on Wednesday was connected to Brown but Sellers was quick to debunk that theory.
