Oregon Murder Suspect Last Seen in Mesa About to Become a Celebrity, America's Most Wanted-Style

A man suspected of murdering two people in Oregon who was last seen in Mesa will be featured on America's Most Wanted this weekend if authorities can't track him down before the show airs on Saturday night.

Police in Bandon, Oregon, have been looking for 34-year-old Gabriel Morris since February 8, when they believe he shot and killed his mother, Robin Anstey, 62, and her boyfriend,  Roberty Kennely, 48.

Morris was last seen in Mesa on Wednesday afternoon when the car he was driving was spotted at a local business, and his mug was picked up on video surveillance.


Police believe Morris (pictured) was traveling through Mesa after leaving San Diego, California.

To make things just a little bit worse, it's believed that Morris is not alone and that his wife and 4-year-old daughter are traveling with him.

It's unclear where Morris went after leaving Mesa, but authorities believe he could be on his way to Louisiana or Florida, where he has family.

Morris is believed to be driving a silver Ford Taurus with Oregon license plate YRK-052.

Anyone with information regarding Morris' whereabouts is encouraged to call the FBI.
