Police failed to find a suspicious person who was spotted near the Oyster Creek nuclear power plant in Lacey Township.

The three-hour search was launched after the person fled on foot after being confronted by members of the National Guard Tuesday afternoon.

State Police used a helicopter and K-9 units from several Ocean County law enforcement agencies combed the woods off the plant's property.

Police say the person was last seen walking north on the Garden State Parkway at milepost 70.4.
