LOS ANGELES (KPTV) -

There's a twist in the hunt for a former Beaverton teacher turned fugitive.

Logan Storm, who was convicted of possessing child porn, hasn't been heard from since he removed his ankle monitoring device and dumped it at a park in Troutdale on Jan. 29.

But a Volkswagen Jetta linked to him has now been found in Los Angeles.

LAPD officers found it at 724 S Wall St. sometime last week. The license plates had been removed.

LAPD notified Los Angeles district marshals, who impounded the car to process it for evidence.

Though the car has been found, there's still no sign of Storm or a second vehicle - a green pickup truck - that he has ties to.

Until the Jetta was discovered in Los Angeles, authorities were not aware of any ties between Storm and the southern California area. They're now looking into that angle of the investigation further.

Storm was convicted in January, but a judge decided to release him pending his sentencing hearing in April. The judge made that decision despite the government's argument that Storm is a flight risk; they pointed out he has already fled the country once before.

Storm does not have a passport this time, at least not one that has been issued by the government.

Earlier this month, U.S. marshals said Storm may be getting help in hiding.

The pickup he has been linked to is described as a green 1999 Ford F150 pickup with an Oregon license plate 726 CKA. Anyone with information on the ex-teacher's whereabouts is asked to call 503-326-2209.
