 (9/25/13) Authorities continue to search for 20-year-old Lars Helgeson because they believe he is armed and dangerous and is connected to the disappearance of his father Brian, 57, who has not been heard from in more than a week.

Deputies recovered a stolen Chevy Suburban they believe Lars was using. They then chased a man into a wooded area in the Township of Springfield in Jackson County  they believe is Lars.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office says they are continuing to search for Lars in the western part of the Jackson County. Authorities want citizens who live and work around County Highway P, Lincoln Road, Kelly Road, East Pine Creek Road, and Townline Road to be extra vigilant, secure your buildings and lock and remove keys from vehicles.

Authorities believe Lars is armed and dangerous. If you have any information about where Brian Helgeson or Lars Helgeson may be, contact the Jackson County Sheriff's Office at (715) 284-5357.
