TRENTON, N.S. — Police in Nova Scotia are still searching for a 33-year-old man from Pictou County they say evaded arrest late Friday.

New Glasgow police said in a statement Saturday that Christopher McKay fled from a home in Trenton, N.S., as officers tried to execute a Canada-wide warrant for his arrest on an alleged parole violation.

Const. Ken MacDonald said officers increased their patrols in the Trenton area as the search for McKay continued throughout the day.

"He could still be in our county," MacDonald said in an interview Saturday afternoon.

He said police do not believe there is a threat to public safety, but he asked local residents to remain vigilant.

Police arrested another man earlier Saturday who had been accompanying McKay and was also wanted for an alleged parole violation, MacDonald said.

Authorities had issued an emergency alert early Saturday morning but later lifted the warning to residents to remain in their homes.

McKay is described as five-feet seven-inches tall, weighing 200 pounds, with face and neck tattoos.

Police have asked anyone with information about his whereabouts to contact them immediately.
