Both Shawna and Mike were detained by Sheriff’s deputies a short distance from where Gilbert had lost control of his stolen pickup. The two witnesses were able to convince deputies they did not know the pickup was stolen. The suspect fled toward Alta Sierra and Highway 49. The suspect was able to elude law enforcement. Any one with information on the location of Nathan Gilbert is asked to call law enforcement. The pickup had been stolen from another home earlier in the morning
