NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu and New Orleans Police Chief Michael Harrison have asked for information from the public as to the whereabouts of 33-year-old Travis Boys who is wanted for murdering NOPD officer Daryle Holloway. Holloway was shot and killed Saturday morning in his cruiser while transporting Boys, who was arrested for aggravated battery and multiple warrants. Following the shooting, Boys, fled the scene. Multiple police agencies are assisting the NOPD in the search for Boys.

"Members of our community know what happened and know where to find Travis Boys," said Mayor Landrieu. "His despicable, cowardly act represents the lowest of the low. Killing an officer in the line of duty is an attack on our community that will not stand. This community needs to come together to say that his actions will not be tolerated. Anyone with information should contact Crimestoppers, which has increased its cash reward."

Chief Harrison said, "We are working with our regional, state and federal law enforcement partners to find and arrest Travis Boys for this heinous crime, but we need members of community to step up if you have any information. His cowardly and heinous act was an assault on our entire community."

The Crimestoppers reward for anyone who has information as to the location of Boys has been increased to $10,000 cash. Those with information are asked to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 or toll-free 1-877-903-STOP. The caller can remain anonymous. The caller does not have to give his or her name nor testify in order to receive the reward, but they must call Crimestoppers directly with the information
