Police are searching for Garrett Logan Schroeder, who was seen walking away when a woman entered her boyfriend's home Friday morning in Ormond Beach and discovered the body, which has not yet been identified by authorities.

The death was reported on Foxhunter Flat Road in the Hunters Ridge subdivision near Highway 40. 

Police said Saturday that a no bond warrant had been issued for Schroeder's arrest for first-degree premeditated murder.  But he's now wanted on homicide charges.

Schroeder might be driving a maroon 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse with the Florida tag AUH W67, which is missing from the home, according to police.

Schroeder has ties to the Tallahassee, Daytona, South Daytona and Ormond areas, police said. He is known to frequent Carrabba's Italian Grill, microbreweries and is known to be a gamer.

Schroeder was described by Ormond Beach police as a white man who is 6 feet 2 inches tall who may have dark brown or black hair.

Police said residents should use caution if they come in contact with Schroeder, as he may be armed.

Ormond Beach police said they performed a well-being check on Schroeder's mother because Schroeder was charged last year with attacking her with a hammer. Police said she's OK.
