Clay County Emergency Management is asking residents northwest of Deweese to lock their doors. As of early Tuesday evening  a man, considered armed and dangerous,  was reportedly on foot in the area of Roads 302 and 303 and Roads E and F.     The search includes Nebraska State Patrol helicopter and police service dogs along with Sheriff;s Offices from Clay, Nuckolls and Hamilton counties.   The man  is described as a white male, about 220 pounds and wearing a brown jumpsuit.  He may have an orange hoodie as well.

Emergency Manager Tim Lewis commended what he described as the “phenomenal amount of teamwork” among law enforcement agencies in the search.

Authorities are asking residents to secure their homes so the man can not get into  homes and to call 911 if they see something suspicious.
