At approximately 12:05pm today, Ouachita Public School in Donaldson was advised to go on lock-down due to a foot pursuit that is in progress on Midway Road approximately 2 miles from the school. The subject is believed to possibly be armed with a knife. We do not believe the students are in danger at this time but due to the proximity of the school, we believe locking down is in their best interest. Deputies are searching the area for the subject, who witnesses have confirmed, is Michael Boman, 38. The subject was last seen in the 1200 block of Midway Road headed west, toward the Saginaw Community. Witnesses stated that the subject was wearing a camouflage jacket. The rumor that this man is an escapee from the Hot Spring County Jail is NOT true. If you see this individual please call Hot Spring County 911. We will keep the community informed as information is obtained.
Update: 2:55 PM-ADC dogs are tracking the subject in the Midway Manhunt back toward Hwy 67. Deputies onscene stated that the tracking dogs have a good track on him in the wooded area between Midway Road and Longbranch Road near Delisle Creek. If you live near this area please call 911 if you see this subject. There is a deputy stationed at the Ouachita Elementary School for dismissal while the others search for this subject. Thank you.
