9PM UPDATE:

The suspected armed burglar is still on the loose.

Sheriff's deputies will be working all night long. They've been getting calls throughout the evening from people concerned.

We talked with the victims who didn't want to go on camera. We have an excerpt of the intense 911 call from this afternoon.

Luckily no one was hurt. The victim tells us the suspect Brandon White barged through the front door of the trailer demanding money and pills waving a handgun.

The victim says he said he was at a low point in his life and hungry. The victim gave him a sandwich and drink. He eventually fled on foot and sheriff's deputies believe he was picked up by someone.

Madison County Sheriff Travis Neely says, "At one point he stuck the pistol to his head talked about taking his own life so apparently there's either very extreme distraught or very intoxicated on some sort of mental condition. You have to assume yeah he could be potentially dangerous to encounter."

The Madison Co Sheriff tells us the suspects footprints were found near the trailer on CR 2289 by tracking prison dogs, but no location has been found on the suspect yet.

Investigators will continue searching throughout the night. _________________________________________________________A manhunt is underway in Madison County after an armed home invasion on FM 2289.

Brandon Francis White, the suspect, is armed and dangerous, according to the sheriff's office. He is white, 32 years old, stands 5'8", weighs 157 pounds and has a history of trouble with the law.

According to Madison County Sheriff Travis Neely, White broke into a home eight miles northwest of Madisonville around 2:00 p.m. Thursday, displayed a small handgun to the three people inside, demanded money and pills, and got away with pills, a sandwich and a soda.

Those inside the home described White as agitated and possibly on some sort of drugs, according to Neely, who said at one point, White put the gun to his own head and threatened to kill himself.

No one was injured in the home.

Neely tells News 3 White lives in the area.

FM 2289 runs northwest-to-southeast, starting just east of Normangee and ending just west of Madisonville.

A DPS helicopter and search dogs from TDCJ have been used in conjunction with local law enforcement in the search.

You're asked to call the Madison County Sheriff's Office at (936) 348-2755 if you have more information.
