RIDGEFIELD, Wash. -- A Washington fugitive, whom police closed an Interstate 5 rest stop to search for last week, was spotted riding a bicycle in Linn County, police said.

Derral "Kenny" Mosby, 36, is wanted for allegedly breaking into a Ridgefield home and stealing a vehicle. He also has outstanding warrants in Lewis and Thurston counties for meth possession, trafficking stolen property and violating a restraining order.

Clark County police closed the Ridgefield rest stop last Thursday to search for him after he called his father from there and said he had been shot. He was not located.

Linn County Sheriff Bruce Riley said days later that Mosby had started calling family members from the Albany and Salem areas. The vehicle stolen from Ridgefield was recovered in Albany Sunday, but Mosby was still not located.

He was later spotted in the Knox Butte area, near the Linn County Fairgrounds, traveling by bicycle, Riley said Tuesday.

Mosby (pictured) was described as very tall, about 6-foot-8. He has with multiple tattoos, including an image of the sun on his right arm, and a lady on his left arm.

Anyone who sees him is asked to call 911. Police say Mosby is often armed with a knife and firearm and should not be approached.
