At approximately 5:11 p.m., an outside agency pinged the phone of a person of concern heading northbound on Hwy 101 at Richardson’s Grove. A description was broadcast and local law enforcement began looking for the vehicle, a sky blue 2013 Mini Cooper four-door.

When the vehicle was located heading into Eureka about 6:45 p.m., the Eureka Police Department was asked to stop the vehicle.
