ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Police are searching for a wanted person who may be armed near Roseburg Tuesday, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office said.

He is described as white, 6 feet tall and weighing 255 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes. He has several tattoos, including a rose and microphones on his chest and a spiderweb on his elbow, authorities said.
