Sheriff Mark Counts reports Mathis, a 43-year-old white male who is described as being cleanshaven and bald, about 5-feet, 11-inches in height. He has not been seen since the afternoon of Feb. 8.
Mathis was picked up near Highway 289 in a 1995 maroon colored Nissan car with damage to the driver's side front fender and rear bumper.
Counts said the department has since tracked his cell phone and the coordinates show him to be somewhere in Missouri.
He was being held by Sharp County for nonpayment of misdemeanor fines through Cherokee Village court. He also had a felony forgery charge in Dent County, Mo.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Mathis should contact the Sharp County Sheriff's Department at 870-994-7356.
