Authorities are searching for a man who fled into the woods following an attempted arrest by a Missouri conservation agent on Friday. One man is in custody.
The Camden County Sheriff's Department had lost contact with the conservation agent after he had requested backup in a rural part of Camden County.
The agent reportedly had spotted two suspects trapping illegally near Carol Cave Road. Shortly after requesting assistance, the sheriff's department lost contact with the agent. He was located in an area where cell phone reception is poor.
The Camden County Sheriff's Department and MDC are looking for the second suspect. The Missouri Highway Patrol may also be assisting in the search.
No new information at this time.
