U.S. marshals in at least four states, including North Carolina, are continuing their search for a Virginia man who is wanted for numerous charges stemming from a 2014 arrest.

Andrew "Andy" Williams, 46, who is wanted in Colonial Heights, Va., is wanted on drug and firearm charges.

Authorities have been searching for Williams after he failed to appear in court.

Officials said Williams has "seemed to fall off law enforcement's radar" since skipping court.

Williams has ties to Virginia but could be in North Carolina, South Carolina or Florida. He has brown eyes and brown hair that may be partially gray on the sides.

Williams stands 6 feet tall, weighs about 200 pounds and also occasionally wears glasses. He could be working jobs that pay cash, such as construction or landscaping.

“He could be anywhere at this point in time. We are still actively seeking him and will continue to search until he is apprehended. We are asking the public to help us in anyway possible,” U.S. Marshal Robert Mathieson, of the Eastern District of Virginia, said in a statement.

Anyone who may have had contact with or seen Williams is asked to contact the U.S. Marshals Service at 1-877-926-8332. Tipsters may remain anonymous.
