John AndersonJuly 12, 2022

UPDATE: SUSPECT IS IN CUSTODY

MEDIA RELEASE

(07/12/2022)

 

On Monday evening, July 11, 2022 the Sheriff’s Office was alerted to a male

juvenile subject who was making severe threats to harm and kill individuals and

members of the general public.

The Sheriff’s Office and Chapman Police Department initiated an investigation

into the threats. As a precaution, victims in a previous case involving the juvenile, members of the public at the Chapman ball complex and Chapman swimming pool were notified and those facilities were evacuated.

The juvenile is Jacob Lawrence Schoby (17). Jacob is a white male, approximately 5’10”, 140 pounds with shaggy brown hair. He was last seen wearing a black and white sweatshirt.

Jacob’s mother is concerned for Jacob and strongly feels he needs help.

Jacob was last seen in the area, on foot, near 1400 Avenue and Fair Road south of Abilene on Monday evening at approximately 9 P.M.

A search of the area involving members of the Sheriff’s Office, the Chapman

Police Department, the Abilene Police Department, the Saline County Sheriff’s

Office, the Junction City Police Department and the Kansas Highway Patrol was

unsuccessful and Jacob could not be located in the surrounding area. Dickinson

County EMS was on standby throughout the search. The search utilized the

Kansas Highway Patrol Helicopter Unit, the Sheriff’s Office K-9 and drone units

and a Saline County Sheriff’s Office mobile Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) unit.

Dickinson County Fire District #1 Fire Department assisted in manning a mobile

command post.

Jacob displayed a small pistol in at least one of the videos he recorded on

Snapchat. Due to the violent nature of the threats and the fact Jacob displayed a

weapon, the Sheriff’s Office stresses that the juvenile should be considered

armed and dangerous.

If you have contact with Jacob or know his whereabouts, do not approach him,

and call 911 immediately. Anyone with recordings of the social media videos or

posts, or further information, please call the Sheriff’s Office at 785-263-4081 or

785-263-1212, or your local law enforcement to report.
