COLUMBIA — The Boone County Sheriff's Department is asking for the public's help finding 60-year-old Garland Wisley who has been charged in a January shooting, it announced in a news release. 

According to the release, officers received a tip of Wisley's whereabouts, then searched the area but did not find him. They are continuing to follow leads and are asking for the public's help in finding Wisley. 

A reward is being offered for information leading to Wisley's capture. He is listed as 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs about 220 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

The Sheriff's Office says it believes Wisley may still be in the mid-Missouri area. He has been charged with second-degree murder and armed criminal action.

The Police Department suspects Wisley of shooting John Albers, 38. Albers' friends say he was trying to protect a woman from an assault by Wisley when Wisley shot him.

The shooting happened January 13 in the 200 block of Sarazen Drive.

Anyone with information on Wisley's whereabouts is asked to contact CrimeStoppers at (573) 875-TIPS.
