Provincial police scaled back a search Tuesday for a 26-year-old Marathon man who may be armed, but continued to employ a dog team, crime-unit specialists and ground searchers.
“We want to assure people that we are still on the scene and looking (for the suspect),” said regional OPP spokeswoman Sgt. Shelley Garr.
Police began looking for Bobby Charbonneau on Sunday, with the assistance of OPP emergency response and tactics and rescue units, after what’s believed to have been a domestic dispute at a downtown residence.
After several OPP cruisers pulled out of the town on Monday, some believed the search had been called off, but Garr emphasized police continue to actively look for Charbonneau.
A ground search conducted by rural-based OPP emergency-response officers was conducted during part of Tuesday, and is to resume today, added Marathon OPP Const. Peter Bertin.
