A manhunt is continuing Tuesday in Barron County for someone the sheriff calls armed and dangerous, according to reports.

Law enforcement officers are looking for Jared Brendel, according to ABC affiliate WQOW. He's wanted in connection with a high speed chase near Dallas, Wisconsin, last month.

On Monday, the sheriff's office said Brendel was seen outside a home south of Dallas with a gun.

Deputies went looking for him, but he took off in a truck which was later found stuck in a field. SWAT teams joined deputies in the search; a State Patrol plane was even used, but there was no sign of Brendel.

The sheriff tells WQOW the search is frustrating and the terrain is swampy but that they will catch him.

Anyone who sees him or knows where he is is encouraged to call 911.
