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.

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.
