FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Federal authorities are asking for the public's help in finding a suspected marijuana dealer who remains on the loose after escaping custody while undergoing medical treatment at a Central Valley health care facility.

U.S. Marshal's Deputy Tim Merrell says Thanousone Volarat was receiving treatment at Fresno's Community Home Infusion Center last Monday when he was last seen getting into a red, newer model Honda sedan that drove away from the facility.

Merrell would not say what sort of treatment the 32-year-old Volarat was getting but says it's expected he would be seeking regular treatments at emergency rooms or medical clinics. The center's website that Volarat escaped from says it provides intravenous infusions and therapeutic injections.

Volarat is facing federal charges after a grand jury had indicted him and two others in September of 2011 for allegedly growing marijuana and distributing it in other states.
