ELKMONT, Ala. (AP) - Deputies in Limestone County say they plan to resume searching for a suspect in a manhunt that has included a helicopter and tracking dogs in dense woods.

WBRC-TV reports that the dogs lost the scent of the man they’re searching for in northern Limestone County and they planned to resume the search Wednesday morning.

Officers tell the Huntsville station that the suspect got into a fight with a sheriff’s deputy during a traffic stop Tuesday afternoon, and the suspect then ran into the woods.

The News Courier of Athens reports that the suspect was last seen in woods near the intersection of Sweet Spring and Brock roads in the Elkmont area. He’s described as 5-foot-10 inches tall, 140 pounds with blonde hair and wearing blue jeans and no shirt.
