BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wis. - The adult son of a man missing in Jackson County has been arrested.
Sheriff's officials say a tip led deputies to a stolen SUV. When deputies approached, a man believed to be the son fled into some woods. Sheriff Duane Waldera says deputies from Jackson and Trempealeau counties, the State Patrol and state agents search the area Wednesday.
The 20-year-old son was arrested about 6 p.m. southeast of Hixton where he lived with his father.
Authorities earlier said the son might be armed and dangerous. But, WXOW-TV (http://bit.ly/16sJteG ) reports he was not armed at the time of his arrest. He's being held in the Jackson County Jail.
