South of the state capitol, FBI agents are part of a huge effort to find a missing 17-year-old.

Thurston County Sheriff Lt. Cameron Simper said Gabriel Davies went missing on his way to football practice at Olympia High. Davies was last seen near Tenino late afternoon yesterday.

Lt. Simper says the teenager’s abandoned car was found in a family’s driveway. According to eyewitnesses, they saw Davies walking alone in the area.

According to the Thurston County Sheriff’s Department, Davies’ truck was found abandoned with blood inside and his smashed cellphone on the ground.

Davies’ family said what happened on Wednesday was irrelevant to Gabriel.

“We have to look at an individual’s behavior,” Simper said. “The pattern of behavior and this is not characteristic of Gabriel. We’re not going to put that aside as a runaway. That’s why we take this seriously and will explore all tips and avenues to make sure we get Gabriel home safely.

At this point, her disappearance is classified as suspicious by the sheriff’s department.

Suspect on lamb since July caught in South Kitsap

Kitsap County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Hayden Armstrong-Nunes yesterday after a struggle in rural South Kitsap County.

Armstrong-Nunes has been wanted for felony assault since early July.

Deputies said they were acting on a tip when responding to a residence on SE Morning Mist Rd, off Long Lake Rd, where Armstrong-Nunes is believed to have stayed.

According to deputies, they used a coordinated plan, surrounding the residence and establishing communication with Armstrong-Nunes, and attempted to call him out of the house.

Armstrong-Nunes came out of the house and at first appeared to comply with the deputy’s instructions, but suddenly decided to jump into a car and take off.

Deputies say he backed off but collided with a large object which prevented him from fleeing. He then decided to try to flee forward but crashed into the front of a KCSO patrol car, blocking his path and causing damage to both vehicles.

Armstrong-Nunes attempted to flee and fought with deputies during his arrest. One of the deputies present at the scene was slightly injured. Armstrong-Nunes did not complain of injuries but was assessed at a local hospital before being transported to jail.

Armstrong-Nunes will be sentenced to $500,000 bond on second-degree domestic assault warrant charges and new additional assault charges stemming from that scuffle with officers.
