Browne, who is about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs about 130 pounds, ran into some woods near the intersection of Ridge Road and Lake Boone Trail. He is believed to be armed.

Officers searched for him on foot and from the air, but did not find him. On Monday, police resumed the search near Martin Middle School.
