Local authorities are on high alert after reports that the Ohio Facebook Live killer suspect Steve Stephens phone recently pinged in Erie.

Police say the most important thing you can do is be on alert. That's why local police want you to know what you're looking for.

Authorities describe Stephens as six-foot-one, weighing 244 pounds. He was last seen driving a white Ford Fusion with temporary Ohio tags. They say he is armed and extremely dangerous.

This individual is not afraid to be known he's not trying to hide the crime or who he is," said New York State Trooper James O'Callaghan."He's very vocal about it and that makes him extremely dangerous."

"We want to make sure the public knows to look for a newer white Ford Fusion, with the description of Steve Stevens. If you come across this person do not approach him, do not take matters into your own hands but just call 911," he said.
