BLACK RIVER FALLS (WKOW) -- The adult son of a man missing in Jackson County has been arrested.

Sheriff's officials say a tip led deputies to a stolen SUV. When deputies approached, a man believed to be the son ran into the woods.

Sheriff Duane Waldera says deputies from Jackson and Trempealeau counties and the State Patrol searched the area Wednesday.

The 20-year-old son was arrested about 6 p.m. southeast of Hixton where he lived with his father.

He's being held in the Jackson County Jail.
