A judge reduced his bond from $500,000 to $30,000, because his lawyer said he was not a flight risk.

But when Mitchell did not show up to his September hearing, authorities said he cut off his ankle monitor.

Mitchell's grandmother, who signed for his $30,000 bond, says that will cost everything she has.

Because Mitchell has not been found, she is deemed responsible for the money. She says this will ruin her financially.

Authorities say they have received leads, but they have not been able to catch Mitchell. They believe he is in the area.
