Man Who Jumped Into Creek To Escape DUI Still Missing, Reward Offered

The family of a man who jumped into a creek to escape a DUI offers reward for return

The man who jumped into a Marin creek on Christmas Eve to escape a traffic stop for possible DUI is still missing -- and his family is offering a reward, according to reports.

Anthony "Tony" Donelson was stopped by police for a sobriety check on Christmas Eve in Ross, according to the Marin Independent Journal. Rather than walk the line or touch his nose, he ran away from police and jumped into Corte Madera creek.

And that is the last that has been seen of him since. Police searched for him following the early-morning stop but have since ceased looking, the newspaper reported.

His family has since offered a $5,000 reward for anyone who can find him.

Donelson's sister, Angelica, asked for anyone who has a boat to help search "the bay and surrounding creeks," the newspaper reported.

Donelson, 23, is a resident of  Novato.
