According to the attorney representing Jennifer and James Crumbley, the pair are returning to the Oakland County area to face arraignment. The lawyer did not say where the couple went or why they initially seemed to flee.

Michigan authorities said Friday they were searching for the two parents charged in the Oxford High School shooting.

Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard told CNN suspected shooter Ethan Crumbley’s parents had stopped communicating with their attorney, calling it “indicative of their intent to flee.”

Jennifer and James Crumbley were charged with four counts of involuntary manslaughter. Under Michigan law, an involuntary manslaughter charge can be pursued if prosecutors believe someone contributed to a situation where harm or death was high.
