BRYAN COUNTY, Ga. (WTOC) - UPDATE: The Bryan County Sheriff’s Office says the search for the man has been called off.

They say they were unable to locate the man that ran from the US Marshalls but will continue to assist in any way they are asked to.

The Bryan County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a man along Highway 119 between George Edwards Road and I-16. They ask anyone who lives in the area to remain in their homes if possible.

Deputies say the person they are searching for is a white man wearing a blue shirt and a ballcap.

The sheriff’s office says they are joined by the US Marshals in the search and there are multiple teams of tracking dogs involved.

Pembroke Police has officers at area schools, but school dismissal is happening on schedule because the search area is not close to any school campuses. The sheriff’s office says there is no threat to any students.

WTOC will update this story as more information becomes available.
