A winter weather advisory is in effect until 7am on Saturday for Beaufort, Mainland Hyde, Martin, Outer Banks Dare, Tyrrell, Washington and western Dare County. The threats are black ice and slick roadways.
Pitt County sheriff's deputies took to the sky in the department's ultra light flying machine to try and track down a wanted man Friday. They also used K-9s on the ground. They were looking for two men who tried to break into a home at 1504 Davenport Farm Road, when they got spooked. One man took off in an older white Taurus, while the second suspect ran into the woods behind the house. So far, deputies have not located either the man in the woods, or the man driving the getaway car.
