Search for man in Big Horn County ends

CROW AGENCY - The search has ended for a Crow Tribe Fish and Wildlife Ranger in Big Horn County, but more questions than answers have turned up regarding the case.

Initial reports from the Big Horn County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday warned the public to be on the lookout for a man driving an older model, red Dodge pickup truck belonging to the Crow Tribe Fish and Game Department, as he was considered armed and dangerous.

Undersheriff Michael Fuss reported the man discharged a firearm out of the vehicle window but would not say what the shots were aimed at.

In a statement, Crow Tribe Chairman Darrin Old Coyote said "He has no known history of violence and has worked on many safety efforts with the Crow Tribe."

The Big Horn County Sheriff's Office along with the Bureau of Indian Affairs continued its search after the Crow Tribe Fish and Game pickup truck was located late Tuesday in a remote area abandoned on the reservation.

The Crow Tribe issued a statement Wednesday morning that the man had been located on the Crow Reservation, but tribal officials are not releasing the man's name.

Crow Tribe Public Relations Specialist Cordell Stewart confirmed the man was employed by the Crow Tribe. As to his current employment status and if any legal action would be taken against the man, Stewart would not comment.

As of 3 p.m. on Wednesday, phone calls to Big Horn County Undersheriff Fuss had not been returned.
