Each Friday, we're looking for your help to track down fugitives in our state.

Wanted: Ebonee Nashy Vaughn

Charges: Armed Robbery

Ebonee Vaughn has been missing since September 2014. She pled guilty to an armed robbery that happened in August of 2011 and was on a three-year probation for her part in the robbery.

On August 22, 2011, Vaughn and two others kidnapped a woman, forcing her at gunpoint to withdraw money from ATM machines around the Valley. 

The victim was doing a favor for a friend by getting them groceries. She had his ATM card and made the mistake of asking for a ride with Vaughn and her friends.

After going to the first ATM where the victim took out $200, Vaughn and the others took the money, then went to another ATM looking to get more cash.

However, the ATM card had reached it's 'withdrawal limit for the day.' With each unsuccessful withdrawal, the gang got angrier and threatened to kill the victim.

They finally hatched a plan to kidnap the actual owner of the card thinking that they would be able to take out the money.

During their attempt to kidnap this person the original victim escaped and contacted police.

Police arrested all three suspects including Vaughn.

Vaughn plead guilty to armed robbery and sentenced to probation. She skipped out on her probation and hasn't been seen since September 2014.
