The California Highway Patrol is searching Tuesday morning along Interstate 80 near the Nevada-California state line for a man who ran from one of their officers.

The CHP describes the search suspect as white, approximately 5 feet 7 inches wearing camouflage pants and carrying a large black duffle bag.

The CHP tweeted about 9:45 a.m. that the public might notice helicopters searching the area east of Hirschdale, which is east of Truckee. Officers caution motorists not to pick up hitchhikers.

“We don’t know if this person is armed or dangerous,” said the tweet. “If you see a suspicious looking person walking along I-80 or in the forest north of the interstate, please call 911.”
