"We know there is a second white mail still unidentified at this time. We will follow leads as they continue to come in," said Paulding County Sheriff Jason K. Landers. "Our information tells us Reynolds is on the run. We will need the public's help to locate him. I am grateful for all the tips we are receiving in this case.
