POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- New York State Police are asking for the public's help in locating a Poughkeepsie woman wanted for identity theft.

Oliva McKechnie, 22, is wanted by the New York State Police in Poughkeepsie after she failed to show up in court in August in connection with an April 2014 arrest for identity theft, state police said.

McKechnie was arrested for stealing from a family member by logging in to their online bank account and transferring money to her personal account, police said.

The Town of Washington Court issued a warrant for her arrest in August when she failed to appear for court proceedings.

McKechnie is described as being 5-feet-7-inches, 165 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.

Anyone with information should contact the New York State Police at 845-677-7300 or email Crimetip@troopers.ny.gov .
