5.37pm: A Bingie resident said patrol cars and police four-wheel drives are involved in a search for what is understood to be a male fugitive.
The resident said police were searching systematically, area-by-area, with the help of the Westpac rescue helicopter.
One elderly neighbour feared the heavily wooded terrain was hampering the search as vehicles could not reach all areas.
