ST. PETERSBURG - Teresa Clovis says most of the people who met her Uncle Michael were left with the same impression.
"Amazing man, amazing man. Much younger than his years," said Clovis.
That, she says, makes this week so much harder to deal with. 74-year-old Michael Cerone died Wednesday from injuries sustained in a Monday morning accident in St. Petersburg.
Police say Lorenzo Lynch ran a red light and struck Cerone's car. Lynch, who is currently on probation, apparently ran away from the scene.
Investigators think he was injured in the crash, but ran anyway because he didn't want to go to jail.
Much to the dismay of Cerone's family, he's still on the run.
The family has been doing TV and radio interviews, pretty much talking to anyone they can to help police get the word out to catch the suspect.
Thursday they decided the "airways" weren't quite enough -- so they took their message to the air.
For four hours, a banner plane circled St. Petersburg reading: "Lorenzo Lynch fugitive on the run. Call police with info."
"It's just something that we can do as a family to help support that to help bring justice and get the word out," said Clovis.
But finding Lynch may be easier said than done.
FOX 13 went to his last known address only to find the house number on the street does not exist.
Even though Clovis says her family is very angry, they don't want Lynch harmed.
"Accept responsibility, turn yourself in, get the medical attention you need and put closure to this," said Clovis.
All this grieving family wants is justice for their favorite uncle. And it appears they'll think outside of the box and up in the air to get it.
"We want to do everything we can to bring justice," said Clovis.
