Remarks: When last seen, Coombs had a full beard. In the past, he has had a short trimmed beard, mustache, and wore wire-rimmed glasses. He is known to alter his appearance. Coombs reportedly maintains very radical, anti-government, white supremacist beliefs, and is associated with the Christian Identity Movement. Indicative of his extreme religious beliefs, he has been seen wearing fringe on his shirt cuffs and pants bottoms. Additionally, he has identified himself in the past as a Christian Israelite Pastor, Nazarite, Ambassador for the Kingdom of Christ, and Legal Ambassador. Coombs formerly resided in Witts Springs, Arkansas, and has close associates there and in Missouri. He also has supporters and relatives in other states. He has been observed with .45 caliber and 9 mm semiautomatic pistols that he carries in an ankle holster and in the small part of his back.

In 1994, AMW first aired the case of Timothy Coombs. Earlier in that year, Coombs shot and seriously wounded a Missouri State Trooper with a rifle. The Trooper had recently arrested the leader of the religious cult that Coombs had belonged to. The trooper survived but died two years later in an unrelated surgery.
So a $100,000 reward was eventually offered for Coombs's apprehension, but he has been wanted for nearly 20 years and was last featured on AMW in 2004. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a Sergent with the Missouri State Troopers believes that Coombs is dead.
“In my opinion, he’s dead,” Wirth adds. “We have a $100,000 reward. He was so vocal, so in your face … he would make somebody mad. Either he’d get arrested or [somebody] would turn him in. He was hated by a lot of people.”
He also goes on to mention that he doesn't believe that Robert Joos, the cult leader who was re-arrested in 2009, is harboring Coombs. He also mentions that lack of leads over the years. I would want to add that if Coombs is currently associated with some sort of white supremacist organization, surely the FBI and Missouri authorities would have informants telling them about it?
