An arrest warrant was issued Monday for a man police said killed his ex-girlfriend's daughter over the weekend.
Roy Parmley, 53, tied up his ex-girlfriend, Terri Wiles, 53, and her daughter, Amanda Wiles, 31, in their home near County Road 650 West north of County Road 100 North early Saturday, police said.
He fatally shot Amanda Wiles before threatening to kill himself and running from the scene, police said.
A warrant was issued for Parmley's arrest on charges of murder, burglary resulting in bodily injury and two counts of criminal confinement.
Crews searched nearby woods and fields Saturday for Parmley. Following leads Sunday, dive teams searched a pond near his home, but they found nothing.
Officers were in the Alexandria area Sunday night after someone reported seeing a person matching Parmley's description on foot with a gun.

"Our goal is taking him in as soon as possible if he has not gone somewhere and taken his own life," said Madison County Sheriff Ron Richardson. "We are doing our best to locate Roy Parmley so he may be held accountable for his actions. We will leave no stone unturned in this investigation."
Friends of Terri and Amanda Wiles are trying to grapple with what's happened.
"They were best friends, and I just don't know how Terri is going to get through this but with the help of her friends, if she allows us were there for her," Rhonda Johnson said.
"I'm just waiting to wake up from this nightmare. I can't believe somebody would do something like that to Mandy, she was the sweetest person," Alice Thacker said. "They were each other's worlds. I don't know how she's going to last without having Mandy around anymore."
Police described Parmley as white, 5 feet 10 inches tall and 205 pounds with brown and gray hair and brown eyes.
They said he was last seen wearing a black T-shirt and carrying two shotguns and a handgun.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Madison County Sheriff's Department at 765-642-0221 or 911.
