Manhunt under way in Effingham County


The Effingham County Sheriff's Office is looking for a man in the 4300 block of Old Dixie Highway South. The road had been shut down in the area and has since reopened.

They said the man made a phone call with threats. He was then seen running in to the woods with what appeared to be a weapon.

A K9 unit was called to assist with the search.

The sheriff's office said they are more concerned that the man will hurt himself rather than people in the community.
