    I'd call the local police department to report is whereabouts and that you know he has a warrant. If that fails, call the local State Police Barracks. If that fails, call the District Attorney's office on Monday.

    If you are facing a felony charge you should have an attorney who is the best person to advise you on this matter. If you don't have an attorney find one IMMEDIATELY to better discuss this. Given the facts you provided no attorney can responsibly advise you as to the potential consequences.
