JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. -

Jacksonville Beach police are looking for a 32-year-old woman wanted on charges of tampering with evidence and accessory after the fact in the fatal hit-and-run crash of a 25-year-old man on Third Street early July 5.

An arrest warrant has been obtained for Janelle Davis in the death of Daniel Stein. Police said they have not been able to find her, so they are asking for the public's help.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call the Jacksonville Beach Police Department at 904-270-1661.

Darrell Lundy, 40, turned himself in to police last month after a warrant was issued on a charge of leaving the scene of an accident involving death. Police said he was driving in the hit-and-run.

Police said Stein was crossing Third Street at North 13th Avenue about 1:40 a.m. July 5 when he was hit by a car. Stein died while being flown to a hospital.

Police said the black Mercedes-Benz did not stop at the scene.

Neptune Beach police found the car later that day, and Jacksonville Beach investigators said they conducted interviews and gathered evidence, along with assistance from the State Attorney's Office.

Lundy (pictured) has three previous driving citations, two for speeding and one for failing to yield right-of-way.

If convicted, Lundy be facing increased penalties for leaving the scene of the accident in accordance with Florida's new laws that went into effect July 1.
