NAPLES, Fla. — The FBI is searching for a Naples man who was set to be sentenced for his role in the January 6 Capitol attack.

Christopher Worrell, a local member of the Proud Boys, was convicted in May of this year for assaulting Capitol police with chemical spray. The Justice Department asked for 14 years in prison, which would be one of the longest January 6 sentences yet.


Worrell was set to be sentenced in Washington D.C. on August 18. The FBI has not given any further details on the search for Worrell, and has not said where they believe he might be.

Worrell's defense had previously asked the judge for probation as Worrell is receiving cancer treatment.
