Anyone with more information on Fuller's whereabouts can contact police at 479-751-4542 or on the anonymous tip line at 479-750-4484.

Police said Fuller struck Jeen John around 6:53 a.m. on Jan. 14 near Fern's Valley Loop and Arkansas 264.

Officers found John, 23, laying near the highway. He was taken to Northwest Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

Police said Monday (Jan. 21) John was still hospitalized and in serious condition.

In Arkansas, Class D felonies are punishable by up to six years in prison and a maximum fine of $10,000.

State law also requires a driver involved in an injury accident to remain on scene for at least 30 minutes and if possible, help the injured.

A GoFundMe has been set up for John to help his family fly in from the Marshall Islands. John is also the father of a one-year-old.

According to the GoFundMe page, doctors have given the family 48 hours to make decisions regarding John's life.

A cousin to the family said that although they have raised enough money to fly John's mother to Springdale to be by her son's side, the family will still need some help getting them home. They could also use help with medical expenses.
