There is a large law enforcement presence in the Buhne Drive area in King Salmon, according to the Humboldt County’s Sheriff’s Department Twitter feed.

A tweet posted at 4:18 pm said they were in the area “for a wanted man who may be barricaded in a residence”.

They ask, “Please avoid this area while law enforcement is working.”

UPDATE 4:57 p.m .: According to Samantha Karges, spokeswoman for the Humboldt County’s Sheriff’s Department,

The call came as a welfare service for a male youth believed to be in the care of his father. The father is wanted by the Eureka Police Department on multiple charges. Since the residence is the responsibility of the Sheriff’s Office, we are assisting EPD in pursuing this case and are trying to contact the man at his residence in Block 1800 of Buhne Drive.

We could not confirm whether the man is in the residence. However, we try to contact him and resolve this situation peacefully.

UPDATE 5:41 pm: According to our local reporter, Mark McKenna, the activity appears to be on Perch Street. Officers blocked the street on Crab Street.
