When Larry Cornelius got to his home on Route F, he said it was surprising.
"There were several patrol cars in my driveway when I got home," Cornelius said. "They wrecked just about 200 yards away from the house. They got cars everywhere and dogs sniffing."
As helicopters flew overhead, neighbors said they didn't know what was going on.
"They just keep flying around up there. They're going east and west, east and west," Ralls County Resident Elva Light said. "My husband was bow hunting and he came home."
Light and her husband said they didn't expect to get much sleep Thursday night.
