Officers continue searching for the occupant of a white Dodge truck wanted by a Texas County deputy Friday afternoon as part of an investigation. 

Roving patrols continue Saturday in the area by state and county officers.

The vehicle, the patrol said, was last seen traveling north on Kinderpost Road. The search began before 1 p.m. Friday after a shot was apparently fired by the county officer, according to the patrol. An earlier report to officers on who fired the shot was incorrect, authorities said. The area is northwest of Licking. 

Anyone seeing the truck should contact 911. Troop I, which serves Phelps County, also is involved.
