    I had seen something earlier that they were looking for a truck, then found/cleared it. I’ll see if I can find the link.

    Edit to add: Evidently the report was in error and they’re still looking for the truck – my apologies.

    I keep posting a description of the suspect on the Huffington Post website and the mods keep deleting it. HP doesnt want their readers to know what the suspect looks like.
