US Marshals are searching for a Barberton teen who is believed to be with a wanted fugitive.

Authorities are offering a reward for the capture of fugitive Louis Jakab, 33, and of 14-year-old Annalys Clay.

Jakab is wanted by the United States Marshals Service on felony warrants in eight different jurisdictions.

His charges include interference with custody, robbery, theft, fraud, passing bad checks and receiving stolen property.

Jakab is also wanted to violating his parole and he has a prior manslaughter conviction.

Clay's mother, Helena Clay, reported her daughter missing on December 4. Clay's mother told the Akron Police Department that her daughter is pregnant and Jakab, who is her cousin, is believed to be the father.

According to Clay's aunt, this is not the first time she has gone missing with Jakab. She says the pair disappeared in September and returned home right before Thanksgiving after police found them. When Clay came back home, she was about eight weeks pregnant.

Youth ministry leader Mikey Weston sent out a tearful plea to the missing girl.

"I love you, Anna. We need you back."

The teenager was one of hundreds of middle schoolers who took part in the ministry every week. But, that ll ended a few months ago. He hasn't talked ot her since September.

"Amazing and outgoing, but at the same time she is vulnerable. She was looking for happiness in the wrong places," said Weston.

Clay and Jakab were last seen in a 2017 black Audi A3 with an Ohio license plate marked as HED-3844.

The plates had been previously reported stolen in Cleveland.

Investigators believe they are still together and have left the State of Ohio.
