A Missaukee County deputy found what a vehicle that was used by the fugitive left in a field on Seeley Rd near the Missaukee County line.  He was then spotted at around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Wesco in Evart, which is south of Cadillac, but has not been seen since. 

Police said Robinson may now be on foot and may be accompanied by a female companion.

"As a precaution, please lock your cars and your homes, and keep your pets inside as MSP canines may be working in the area," police instructed area residents on Tuesday, adding: "If you see anyone suspicious, call 911."

State Police remind the public that anyone who helps to hide or harbor Robinson or any other fugitive that you are committing a crime and will face charges. Police wrote in a tweet: "Consider this warning: You are committing a crime and we will seek to have you charged to the fullest extent of the law."

Michigan Department of Corrections records show Robinson's criminal history includes drug and weapons charges, fleeing police, larceny and auto theft.

Anyone who sees him should not approach him and call 911. Anyone who knows of his whereabouts, or anything else that could help police with this case, should call the Silent Observer tip line at 1-800-528-8234.
