Federal authorities are asking for the public’s help in finding a murder suspect who is believed to have fled North Carolina, where he is facing charges, and may have Long Island ties.

Luis Alberto Ordonez-Vega was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of 22-year-old Noel Navarro Hernandez, who was found dead in southwest Charlotte, North Carolina on June 6. Ordonez-Vega was then charged federally last month with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

“It’s possible that Ordonez-Vega has fled the Charlotte area to avoid arrest,” an FBI spokesman said in a statement. “He may have ties to Long Island.”

The 35-year-old construction worker, who was born in Guatemala, is described as 5-feet, 11-inches-to-6-feet tall, 220-to-260 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He has a scar on his nose, a scar on both of his cheeks, tattoos on both of his arms and a tattoo on his left hand

He has been living in North Carolina. Aside from Long Island, he also has ties to Florida and Utah. He should be considered armed and dangerous, authorities warned.

FBI agents ask anyone with information on this case to call them at 704-672-6100.
