Federal Authorities Looking for Wanted Man
(ABC 6 News) -- He's considered armed and dangerous, wanted by federal authorities. That man is still on the loose. Police all across our area were contacted by the U.S. Marshals office. He's from Elma Iowa, but they say he could be hiding out nearby.
They say he's considered very dangerous. That's 55 year-old Michael Strain. Though from Elma Iowa, police all across our area, even southern Minnesota, are now searching for him. That's because the U.S. Marshal's office says he has ties here with relatives and friends both in Mason City and Rochester. They're concerned these are the spots he's hiding out.
Mason City Police Captain Mike McKelvey says everyone should be on the lookout. "Just call 911. If you see him call 911 give the location, vehicle information, as much details as you can. Do not approach or try to apprehend this person yourself," said Captain McKelvey.
When we last spoke, Captain McKelvey said Strain is still on the loose and they don't have any further details on his location. He's described as a white or white/Hispanic male, 5' 6" and 180 pounds.
