Coeur d’Alene police detectives and the multiagency SWAT team spent several hours scouring Tubbs Hill in a search for fugitive Douglas J. Standish.
Police learned the 49-year-old kidnapping suspect may have been hiding out on the hill near downtown. They may continue the search today.
Standish is suspected of kidnapping a Dalton Gardens woman at gunpoint Monday.
The woman reported the kidnapping about 3:30 p.m. Monday after she was released in Coeur d’Alene. She said she was taken from her home about 10:30 a.m. and identified Standish as the suspect.
A warrant for his arrest sets bail at $100,000 on a first-degree kidnapping charge.
Standish is 5-foot-10 and 225 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes. He was last seen driving a blue Chrysler Town and Country van with a possible Idaho license plate of K303434.
