LITTLE ROCK, AR - We have just learned of a possible Timothy Buffington sighting in Mississippi.

WABG in Greenville Mississippi has reported Buffington was possibly spotted in a 1990's model Buick LesSabre with an Arkansas license plate number 666 TRJ.

Shea Wilson, with the Arkansas Department of Correction confirmed that a vehicle matching that description was reported stolen from the Pine Bluff area. However, she cannot confirm that Buffington was the person who stole that vehicle.
