Authorities searching for man who allegedly ran across freeway, held knife to his throat 

–On Tuesday, the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office assisted County Probation Officers with a search in the Templeton area for a suspect who was wanted on a felony warrant. The search began after Probation Officers spotted 25-year-old Daniel Jay Romo near Bennett Way in Templeton. Romo ran across Highway 101 into the area near Templeton Middle School. Romo was spotted holding a knife to his throat and was considered to be suicidal. As a precaution, a reverse 911 call was sent out to residents in that area to stay inside while the search was being conducted.

Sheriff’s Deputies, Probation Officers, CHP K9’s, and a CHP helicopter assisted with the search. A thorough search was conducted but Romo was not located. Romo was last seen wearing a multi-colored dress shirt, dark jeans and sunglasses. Romo is 5′ 7″ tall and weighs 140 pounds. He has visible tattoos on his face and neck. He is not considered a danger to the public. Anyone who has information on his whereabouts is encouraged to contact the Sheriff’s Office at (805) 781-4550.
