Police in Florida have been searching for Detroit Lions cornerback Cameron Sutton for nearly two weeks after an arrest warrant was issued over his alleged involvement in a domestic violence case.

Sutton is charged with murder by strangulation by domestic battery.

Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Phil Martello told ESPN on Wednesday that police have been unable to locate Sutton since an arrest warrant was issued on March 7. Police responded to a call that morning at a home in Lutz, Florida, where Sutton had allegedly beaten a woman before fleeing the scene.

Another Sheriff’s Office spokesperson told ESPN that there was evidence of wounds to the woman’s body.

Sutton has a home in neighboring Pinellas County, Martello said, but police have not been able to find him there and he has not responded to detectives’ repeated calls.

“We became aware of the ongoing legal situation involving Cam Sutton this morning,” the Lions said in a statement. “We will continue to monitor the situation and will not have any further comment at this time.”

Sheriff’s Office post a social media post If anyone has seen Sutton ask for help Wednesday.

Sutton, 29, joined the Lions as an unrestricted free agent last summer after spending his first six NFL seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He started all 17 games for the Lions, recording 60 total tackles, six passes defensed and one interception. Sutton was selected by the Steelers in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
