The simple answer to your question is NO, misdemeanor warrants just don't go away without some reason. More information is needed in your particular case to find out the status of your warrant. You can call the criminal clerk in the court of issuance to find out. But, you don't want to turn yourself in or make any statements about the alleged underlying crime(s) to anyone without an experienced criminal defense attorney at your side.

Warrants just do not g away or disappear. Try calling the court clerk to see if you are still in the system. Do not attempt to turn yourself in or make any statements to anyone about the case without first consulting with a lawyer.

actually there are times in which the system will get purged. this actually requires the court clerk and the prosecutor's office to communicate with them regarding old cases. how old is your case? I know you said the warrant was out there for years ago but that was the case with issues? it would probably be best to have an attorney research this and find out exactly where the cases and if it is still pending. this should not cost very much for you to do.
