OCHOPEE, Fla. - A rental car found abandoned Sunday afternoon at a roadside park in Collier County has been tied to a man wanted for murder in Louisiana.

The car was found parked at the Kirby Storter Roadside Park in Ochopee.  The license plate was missing from the blue Nissan Sentra but Collier County deputies traced the vehicle identification number back to 48-year-old Alan Virgil Brumfield.

He is wanted for first-degree murder in connection with an Oct. 13 home invasion and shooting in Natchitoches Parish, La.

Deputies searched the area from the ground and the air and determined that Brumfield was not in the vicinity.

Anyone with information on Brumfield’s whereabouts is asked to call their local law enforcement agency or the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office at 318-352-6432.
