Saline Police led a multi-agency search Thursday for a local man wanted by the Michigan Department of Corrections.
Police were called to a store in The Oaks plaza by a person who recognized the man. When Saline Police arrived the man fled on foot.
Police set up a perimeter with the help of police from Pittsfield, Milan and the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office. Milan also brought a dog who tracked a trail through the fields at Braun Farm off of Bemis Road before losing the scent, according to Saline Police Chief Jerrod Hart.
Hart said he was appreciative of the cooperation from other law enforcement agencies.
