COOS BAY — The FBI is asking for the public's assistance in locating fugitive Shawn Frederick Weatherhead, a transient with ties to the Springfield-Eugene area in Oregon; to Eureka, Calif.; and to Reno, Nevada.

Weatherhead has allegedly contacted the FBI's Public Access Line in Clarksburg, West Virginia, or other FBI offices around the country, approximately 1,000 times since December 2015 from locations in California, Oregon and Nevada. On at least three occasions, between April 1-2, 2017, Weatherhead allegedly threatened to kill people during his calls.
