(BATAVIA, OH) -- Authorities in Clermont County are looking for a man who failed to show up for sentencing on June 12 and hasn't been seen since.

Police have issued a warrant for the arrest of Christopher Crosby, 25, for failure to appear with a $200,000 cash or professional bond.

Crosby was waiting to be sentenced after a plea to a previous 14-count indictment involving the invasion into a Batavia Township home where a mother and her three small children were present at the time of the offense. Firearms were stolen during the break in.

He was last seen riding a horse near Laurel in Clermont County.

Crosby is known to frequent his parents' home on state Route 232 in New Richmond and was seen there on the night of June 11, according to an eyewitness.

Police say Crosby may also frequent the Hollytown Mobile Home Park area and may burglarize homes in the Monroe Township area to survive.

He is described as 5-foot-10 and 138 pounds.

If seen or if you have any information call the Clermont County Sheriff's office at 732-7500 or dispatch at 732-2231. staff
