Wanted Florida Man Captured in Great Smokies

A wanted Florida man was caught after an extensive manhunt in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on Friday. On February 16, 2017, a park ranger pulled over a car at Little River Road near the Meigs Falls area at around 3 p.m. Officials said the adult male driver ran through the woods across Little River Road. The man was identified as Noah J. Davis of Putnam County, Florida. Authorities said Davis was wanted on an active warrant for violating parole conditions. Great Smoky Mountains officials worked with Knox, Sevier and Blount County officers throughout the night to search for Davis using canine units, aerial support, and the forward looking infrared radar to find Davis. Officials said Davis is being treated for minor injuries.
