WALB's Most is on the lookout for a Fitzgerald man who, police say, preyed on an elderly woman.

This is 46-year-old Henry Lynn Searcy. Police say he snatched a purse from an 82-year-old woman a couple of weeks ago.

The woman had shopped at the Dollar General store there in Fitzgerald, and as she was loading her purchases into a car, police say Searcy ran up, grabbed her purse, and took off.

Thank goodness she wasn't hurt. Now police have warrants on Searcy, who's got a long criminal history.

He's light-skinned, 6 1", 215 pounds. His last known address is 131 Finch Circle in Fitzgerald.

If you know where police can find him, please call them at 229-426-5000 or you can call the Ben Hill County Sheriff's Office at 229-426-5161.
