The U.S. Marshals Service says no federal or state warrantshave been issued for Kim Gordon’s arrest at this point as they continue to investigate his disappearance, KSBW reports.

The Monterey County Sheriff’s Office believes Gordon faked his own death at Monastery Beach in Carmel on Monday evening to avoid facing charges of 24 counts of rape in Scotland.

Officers say after three days of searching by land and water, there were no signs of Gordon. After questioning his 17-year-old son, who made the call to 911, the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office said his answers weren’t adding up.

KSBW has been in contact with Scottish media, who is also looking into the case.

We’ve learned Gordon is a well-known street trader and performer from Inverness and that he is supposed to appear in Scottish court on Monday, March 11.

As of now, officers don’t know if the accused rapist left the county or possibly the country.

Gordon is described as 5 feet, 11 inches tall. He weighs about 200 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes.

If you have any information regarding his whereabouts, you are urged to call 911.
