WILLIAMSON COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

Williamson County Sheriff Bennie Vick is asking for the public's help finding a fugitive.

Brent Michael Odum, 20, of Johnston City is currently wanted for aggravated domestic battery and driving under the influence (failure to appear). He is believed to be in the Johnston City area.

Odum is described as a white male, 5'10" tall and weighing 170 lbs. He has black hair and brown eyes.

According to Sheriff Vick, people should not try to approach or detain Odum, or any person who has an outstanding warrant. They should simply contact the Williamson County Sheriff's Office at 618-997-6541, or contact their local law enforcement agency.

Anyone with information concerning Odum's location may also contact Williamson County Crimestoppers.

Crimestoppers can be contacted by calling 1-800-414-TIPS (8477), by online message at www.williamsoncrimestoppers.com, or by texting a tip to CRIMES (274637). If a text message is used, the tipster needs to begin the text with the word "quicktip_".

If you contact Crimestoppers, the sheriff said you do not have to leave your name or telephone number. You will remain completely anonymous, and receive a tip number for identification.

Information received that leads to an arrest may make the caller eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
