Authorities are seeking the public's help in their hunt for a man accused of killing a Cumming mother of two last week.

Forsyth County Sheriff Ted Paxton said warrants for Jorge Montiel's arrest were obtained Monday morning.

"His whereabouts are unknown," Paxton said.

Montiel, who is between the ages of 22 and 25, is wanted for murder, aggravated sodomy and burglary in connection with the death of 34-year-old Maria Hernandez-Reyes.

Hernandez-Reyes was found dead Oct. 13 in her home on Park Street, off Pilgrim Mill Road near Cumming City Park, by a man who rented a room in the house from her and her husband.
