RONAN – A manhunt is on for Harry Lozeau, suspected in the Saturday murder of his brother, after authorities found the car the suspect was last seen driving in the Mission Mountains east of Ronan Monday morning.
As many as 30 law enforcement officers are searching the area, assisted by a helicopter from the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office, according to Lake County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Karen Sargeant.
