ROCK COUNTY, Wis. (WMTV) -- The Rock County Sheriff's Office continues to work with other local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies to locate and apprehend Joseph Jakubowski.

As of Wednesday night, approximately 700 tips have been received, and investigators are currently pursuing about 130 tips.

The Wisconsin Lottery has published an alert to all of the lottery terminals in the state. The terminals can be found in gas stations, convenience stores, grocery stores, and other Lottery retailers. The published alert message is available for the store clerks and other employees to see. The alert message provided a photo of Jakubowski and instructions to notify law enforcement by calling 911. This technology is used with AMBER and Silver Alerts in Wisconsin.

The Rock County Sheriff's Office has also learned a tattoo "BOY" photo released Tuesday, labeled "BOS," is no longer applicable. Investigators have since learned that Jakubowski covered the upper right arm tattoo with a newer tattoo.

Jakubowski is considered armed and dangerous. Direct sightings of Jakubowski should be called into 911 immediately. General tips can be reported to the FBI tip line: 1-800-CALLFBI or the Rock County Sheriff's Office tip line: 608-757-7911.
