A missing and pregnant 14-year-old Ohio girl may be traveling with a fugitive 33-year-old man wanted for a parole violation and previously convicted of manslaughter, PEOPLE confirms.
Annalys Clay, of Barberton, was reported missing Dec. 4 to Akron Police by her mother, Helenea, who said that she believed Annalys is traveling with the man who is also her cousin, Louis Jakab, 33.
Jakab currently is charged in eight jurisdictions with felony warrants that include robbery, theft, fraud, passing bad checks, receiving stolen property, and interference with custody, according to a news release from the U.S. Marshals Service.
Helenea Clay also said her daughter is pregnant, and that Jakab may be the unborn child’s father, reports the TV station Fox8 Cleveland.

The initial missing-persons report to Akron police turned out to have inaccurate details, according to a spokesman for the department. The spokesman says that as a result, investigators are weighing whether to file charges against the mother alleging a false police report.
Akron Police Lt. Rick Edwards tells PEOPLE that Annalys actually disappeared from the Strongsville area where she previously was found after allegedly running away for two months, and that Strongsville is the address of Jakab.
Strongsville Police confirmed to PEOPLE that they are now investigating the case, which is described on an incident report obtained by PEOPLE as “a report of a juvenile female [allegedly] taken by a known adult male relative.”
“She is in danger,” detective Bill Bolden of the U.S. Marshals Service tells PEOPLE. He says he bases his concern on the alleged detail of a female juvenile in the company of an adult male who has a record of criminal activity, and her apparent alleged willingness to do whatever he says.
Jakab served 10 years in prison after conviction for manslaughter that involved a shooting, Bolden says.
Investigators believe the two are together but have left Ohio, and last were seen in a black 2017 Audi A3 bearing an Ohio license plate HED-3844, the U.S. Marshals Office reports. The license plate had been reported stolen in Cleveland.
Clay is described as white, 5 feet 5 inches tall, weighing 125 lbs. with red hair and blue eyes.
