Deputies from Bay, Walton County Sheriffs Offices and other law enforcement agencies continue to search for Louisiana escapee Christopher Stringer. Law enforcement officials have worked around the clock to capture Stringer. Deputies are working tirelessly in difficult conditions. We are still concentrating in the Carillon Beach to Inlet Beach areas. Heavy vegetation and lowlands make searching difficult. Pictured is some of the areas law enforcement have been searching. This thick vegetation makes it easy for Stringer to conceal himself. Deputies will be on foot tonight continuing the search. Please know we are doing everything to apprehend Stringer.
