Fugitive Sought

A wanted man is still on the loose after a weekend manhunt was unsuccessful for Robertson County authorities.

The sheriff's office said around 10 o'clock Sunday night a routine traffic stop in Franklin turned into a high pursuit chase when a driver failed to stop.

The chase continued into Hearne, ending when the driver got out of his car and ran into the woods. Police searched for several hours with no luck.

The suspect is described as a white male, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 130 pounds, with brown hair.

They believe the man may be wanted in another state for probation violations.
