King County detectives say Timothy Greiner showed up to court on Thursday, and was remanded by the judge.

WANTED IN KING COUNTY March 14, 2014  —
Timothy Greiner is a convicted felon wanted for child rape in King County.

“He failed to show up for trial for this case,” King County sheriff’s Sgt. Cindi West said. “He knows he’s wanted. One of our detectives contacted him on the phone recently, and Greiner said he’d turn himself in. He failed to turn himself in, so now he’s on the run and he knows we’re looking for him. We believe that he’s possibly living or staying in the downtown Seattle area, or with friends in Kent or Auburn. If you recognize this guy, pick up the phone and call us so we can get him off the street before he hurts another child.”

Timothy Greiner is Native American, 33, 5-foot-6, and weighs about 180 pounds.
