The Oklahoma County Sheriff's office is turning to the public for help locating the subject of an arrest warrant in Oklahoma City.

The sheriff's office issued the warrant for 35-year-old John Longan for the charges of manslaughter, driving under the influence and drug possession.

His charges stem from a crash in the 1100-block of N. Stonewall Ave. in Oklahoma City back in Nov. 2012.

Around 3 a.m. on Nov. 10, 2012, an OUHSC Police Dept. officer saw a truck that crashed into a concrete and brick sign. The driver of the truck was Longan and he had a passenger with him. The passenger later died of his injuries suffered from the crash.

As part of the investigation, officers determined Longan had been drinking, which he admitted to, and they also found a bottle of Oxycotin that wasn't prescribed to either of the people inside the truck. 

If you have information regarding Longan's whereabouts, call the sheriff's office at (405) 713-1968.
