Pensacola manhunt ends with toddler safe


New this morning -- a Pensacola man has been arrested after leading deputies on a manhunt in the woods with his 2-year old.

Deputies got a call that Darin Mathis drove into the woods off Hillock Road in Escambia County Sunday. A witness said Mathis had threatened to hurt and kill the child.

Deputies searched for Mathis for about an hour and a half before getting a tip the child had been dropped off at a nearby home. Deputies later caught Mathis and arrested him.

He's charged with child neglect - domestic violence, and resisting arrest without violence.
