GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

The Graves County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in finding a wanted woman.

According to the sheriff's office, Tabitha M. Wheeler has an active warrant for her arrest out of Graves circuit court for failing to comply with a monitored conditional release program.

Wheeler was released after she was charged in February of 2014 with four counts of assault in the first degree, four counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree, DUI 1st offense, no operator's license and other charges.

The charges stem from a wreck on KY 849 East on January 25.

According to the sheriff's office, it is alleged that Wheeler was under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs during the crash.

The collision seriously injured Mayfield teenager Corey Gentry as well as Wheeler's two children who were all passengers in the vehicle.

Wheeler's two children have recovered, but Gentry just recently returned home from a lengthy stay at Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee. Gentry still faces a long road of recovery due to the injuries he sustained in the collision, according to the sheriff's office.

Authorities say Wheeler has not been seen by family in several weeks.

She recently has lived in Mayfield and Symsoina, Kentucky.

Wheeler, 34, is described as a white, female with green eyes and black hair. She is 5'2” tall and weighs approximately 170 pounds.

The sheriff's office says she may be in the Paducah, Kentucky or Metropolis, Illinois area.

Anyone with information on Wheeler's location is asked to contact the Graves County Sheriff's Office at 270-247-4501, the Mayfield/Graves County Crimestoppers at 270-247-5000, or call your local authorities.
