Wentworth, NC -- The Rockingham County Fire Marshal and sheriff's office say they are looking for a vehicle possibly involved in two recent church fires.

Authorities are still looking for information on the identity of the person who drives a 1980s green Honda Accord that looks similar to the one pictured above.

Note: This picture shows a similar vehicle. This is not the exact car deputies need help finding.

The Accord might have faded paint--and possibly primer--as well as a loud muffler, according to the sheriff's office.

Witnesses say they saw the car in question on Gideon Grove Church Road right around the time the Gideon Grove United Methodist Church fire was reported Dec. 23.
