MARS HILL, Maine — State police have located a vehicle that belongs to a Mars Hill man who has been on the run from police since he became a suspect in a violent domestic assault on Sunday, but the suspect remains at large.

State police Sgt. Brian Harris said Wednesday afternoon that police had located the 1998 Chevy Malibu belonging to 30-year-old Chad Walton. The vehicle was found in a parking area in Easton and has been impounded.

Police began searching for Walton shortly after the incident late Sunday evening.

Harris said that the female victim suffered serious facial injuries and was taken to The Aroostook Medical Center in Presque Isle.

Walton, who is wanted for questioning in the case, is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds.

Walton was indicted by the Aroostook County grand jury in 2009 for aggravated assault and violation of condition of release.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Maine State Police barracks at 532-5400. Any information will be kept confidential.
