A woman wanted for the murder of her husband in California apparently left Okaloosa County earlier today (Friday). Elisa McNabney, age 35 (1-3-67), and her 17 year old daughter are believed to be traveling in a dark green 1996 Dodge Dakota pickup truck bearing Florida tags G69-DGV.

McNabney is wanted in the Sacramento area by the San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office and the FBI for the murder of her husband, an attorney who was missing for several months before his body was discovered buried in a vineyard on February 5.

McNabney took an acquaintance's vehicle early this morning, leaving behind her red Jaguar convertible. The Jaguar was located this afternoon (Friday afternoon) in a parking lot on North Eglin Parkway in the Ocean City area.

It was learned yesterday McNabney might be in the south Okaloosa/south Walton County area. She is known to have used several alias names including "Shane Ivaroni,""Lauren Sims," and "Sarah Dutra."
