People near Pattonsburg, Mo. are urged to use caution and observe your surroundings this morning - a mentally ill man with a gun is on the run in the area after stealing a police car.

Police say that man, Joshua W. Boyd, is described as approximately 5'9" tall, weighing around 170 lbs. He was last seen wearing a blue shirt and khaki shorts. He is approximately 30 years old.

Kansas City authorities described an "emotionally disturbed homeless man" who stole a blue Ford Taurus around 2:30 this morning, seen traveling on eastbound Interstate 70, near Prospect. Police attempted to make contact with the man over a 2-way radio, with no success.

Around 4:20 a.m., the Missouri Highway Patrol located the vehicle on the side of Interstate 35 near Pattonsburg (10 miles south of Bethany), with a shotgun noted to be missing from the vehicle.

As a result of the ongoing search, police are asking nearby residents, particularly those in Daviess County, to be on alert.
