A manhunt for a suspect in Crawford County has ended, but authorities are still following leads as the man remains at large.

Jason Shadle of Flora was stopped just before 8am Monday in Robinson for a traffic violation, but fled the scene after he was found to be wanted on active warrants from Jasper, White and Clay counties.  Robinson police initiated the manhunt with assistance from Crawford County sheriff's deputies as well as Palestine and Oblong police.  Two K9 units were enlisted to help with the search.

Shadle was not located, and the manhunt was ended later Monday.  

Crawford County sheriff's deputies say they're still following up on leads from the public as they search for Shadle.
