CLEARFIELD COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — Clearfield County Sheriffs are searching for a wanted man who never reported on violation of probation/parole from aggravated assault and firearm charges.

The sheriff’s office reports that Ralph Clayton Best failed to report for the probation/parole violation and also failed to appear at a preliminary hearing on Nov. 10.

Best, 59, is described as a 5’8″ to 5’11″ white male who weighs roughly 220 pounds. He’s said to have white hair and hazel eyes. He’s also known to drive a black 4 door Ford Explorer Sport Trac.

Back in June,  Best reportedly threatened a woman with a .22 caliber revolver that he had taken from a holster on her hip. Best reportedly accused the woman of cheating on him and repeatedly demanded she gives him their names, according to original reports from Lawrence Township police.

Anyone with any information about Best’s whereabouts is asked to call the Clearfield County Sheriff’s Office at 814-765-2641 or Clearfield County Control at 814-765-1533.
