Parents of Ethan Crumbley, the 15-year-old charged with killing four at Oxford high school, have been charged with involuntary manslaughter.

Michigan authorities are asking the public to be on the lookout for the parents of Oxford High School shooting suspect Ethan Crumbley.

A statewide “Be on the Lookout” (BOLO) alert was issued for James and Jennifer Crumbley Friday, two police departments first confirmed to FOX 2 Detroit.

After the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office was notified by prosecutor Karen McDonald that she was going to issue charges against the parents on Friday, deputies moved “to arrest the parents,” but their attorney told authorities that they “are now unresponsive,” Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard told Fox News’ “The Story” on Friday.

On Thursday, an attorney for the Crumbleys told authorities that “they were going to turn themselves in.”

“The attorney said she would make that happen this morning,” Bouchard said. 

The two parents are each facing four counts of involuntary manslaughter after their 15-year-old son was accused of killing four students after opening fire inside Oakland High School earlier this week., according to Oakland County prosecutor Karen McDonald.

“Our detectives and fugitive apprehension team and the U.S. Marshall service and the FBI — all of us are in concert looking for them,” Bouchard said. “I’m confident we’ll find these two.”

He added that the turn of event has not “played out” the way officers “would have liked it to.”

“We would have liked to have been given a bit of advance notice that a warrant was coming and had set up on them or done something electronically,” he said. “It is what it is, and we’re going to find them.”
