Crawford County authorities are seeking a Flora man who fled the scene of a traffic stop.

Jason Shadle was stopped in Robinson just before 8am, but fled on foot.  Robinson police initiated the request for a manhunt.  Crawford County sheriff's deputies are assisting in the search, along with Palestine and Oblong police officers.  Two K9 units are helping with the search.

Shadle is wanted on warrants for various offenses in Jasper, White and Clay counties.

The search area is roughly three miles northwest of Robinson.  Asked whether Shadle was armed, Crawford County deputies say they believe he was, but a weapon has been recovered that they believe belonged to him.
