A manhunt is underway to catch 40-year-old Robert Card, who has been described as “armed and dangerous”.

At a press conference on Thursday, Colonel William G Ross of Maine State Police said that a vehicle had been found in the nearby town of Lisbon.

“That person, through the registration of that vehicle, was identified - it has been stated earlier - as Robert Card, born in 1983,” Colonel Ross said.
