MEDFORD -- The Jackson County Sheriff's office says Lennie Ames, the person of interest in the July disappearance of Ruch woman, Stephanie Warner, has left the state.

"With Lennie Ames being named a person of interest it's because we can't clear him of being involved in her disappearance at this time so that doesn't mean that he's not free to go where he wants to go." 

But Detective Eric Henderson says Ames is now wanted on two warrants out of Jackson county for trespassing and littering on BLM land. He also said, they have information that Aims went to Georgia earlier this month.

"I don't know why he left Southern Oregon, I don't. I think that a lot of people would wonder why somebody who is claiming to be close to someone would leave, but like I said people deal with things the way that they do," said Henderson.

Henderson also said, Lennie's son, Jared Fournier is wanted for violating probation.

"We love her and we miss her and we want her back," said Warner's sister, Sharon Lambert.

Stephanie Anne Warner disappeared from her Ruch home in July. She was last seen marching in Ashland's Fourth of July parade.

"It's just like you want to scream, 'where is she?'" said Lambert who had this message for Ames: "Please think about what this is doing to my mother. Imagine not knowing where your child is and we would hope that he would step up and cooperate and do the right thing."

Anyone with information should call the Jackson County Sheriff's Department.
