A police helicopter was used to search for a man in connection with a domestic incident in Hemel Hempstead last night.
Officers were called to a house in Solway, Highfield, at 5.50pm, where the man was believed to be.
A woman and child had left the house before police arrived at the scene and forced entry to the home – but the man was not inside.
The helicopter was used for assistance in finding the man, who has still not been located.
No arrests have been made and no-one was injured in the incident, despite rumours on social media circulating about a murder in the area.
