"He does have family in Callaway County, but if they would let him stay with them, I don't know. He does have many acquaintances who would happily let him stay, though."Schroer has a probation/parole violation warrant currently out. The probation/parole is for burglary and property damage.Smith said that at 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday, a person in the area where they searched last night called dispatch and said that Schroer was knocking on her door.Smith said that due to other investigations, only one deputy was available at the time of the call, and that deputy was at a domestic dispute.
