    The FBI has issued a warrant for Timothy Virts' arrest for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

    This warrant is in addition to the warrant for Virts' arrest on first-degree murder charges, issued this morning by Baltimore County Police.

    The FBI's warrant gives federal authorities the ability to arrest Virts anywhere in the United States.

    A copy of the FBI's "wanted" poster for Virts is available on the FBI Baltimore Division web site.

    Timothy Virts is suspected of killing Bobbie Jo Cortez yesterday in her home in Dundalk and fleeing with their 11-year-old daughter, Caitlyn. See earlier blog posts for details.

    Timothy Howard Virts and Caitlyn Marie Virts have been located in a Motel in Florence, South Carolina. Mr Virts is in police custody and Caitlyn appears to be unharmed.

    Investigators believe that the two being located is a direct result of the expanded Amber Alert.

    The return of Timothy Howard Virts is pending an extradition process. Caitlyn Virts will be returned home as soon as possible. Baltimore County DSS has already been put in contact with Social Services officials in South Carolina.

    Johnson "Relieved" That Caitlyn Is Safe
    Mar 08, 2014 11:43:00 AM EST


    Today Baltimore County Police Chief Jim Johnson reaffirmed that Caitlyn Virts is safe and that Baltimore County Police, Baltimore County's Department of Health and Human Services and the FBI will provide all available resources to help her and her siblings.

    Caitlyn's mother, Bobbi Jo Cortez, 36, was found murdered Thursday morning in her bedroom in the 3100 block of Ardee Way in Dundalk. Caitlyn's father, Timothy Virts -- who fled with Caitlyn after the killing and was found in South Carolina last night -- is charged with first-degree murder. He will be extradited to face prosecution in Maryland; the extradition process can take weeks.

    At a press briefing this morning, Chief Johnson said that the FBI Baltimore Division's participation in the investigation was pivotal in locating Timothy and Caitlyn Virtz. Representatives of FBI's Baltimore Division, including Special Agent in Charge Steve Vogt, participated in this morning's briefing.

    Johnson said he was "incredibly relieved" that Caitlyn has been found safe, and credited citizen "keyboard crimefighters" with paying attention to the search and helping law enforcement by calling in "thousands" of tips.

    Here is a summary of the information Chief Johnson provided:

    Motel Owner: Finding Missing Girl "Answer To The Prayers"

    Saturday, March 8, 2014
    Robert Lang and David Collins

    (snip)
    Gause said Timothy Virts and his daughter had checked in on Thursday night, and noted, "they looked Ok."

    She said around the scheduled check out time on Friday morning, Virts paid for a second night of lodging.

    Johnson called the motel owner, one of many "citizen keyboard crime fighters" who had offered police thousands of tips in this case. He said the clerk linked the information she found online to the motel registry.

    (snip)
    "No, I say the heroes were the people who started praying for this little girl, when they found out what was going on, and it was the answer of prayers that things worked out like it did," Gause said.

    "The fact that he came to my motel, and the fact that I rented to him, and the fact that I rented to him, and that I was the one who saw it on Facebook, that was just the answer to the prayers."
