The search includes police from Nesquehoning, Jim Thorpe, Lansford, and a State Police helicopter.

The Panther Valley Elementary School nearby was under what they call a “white lockdown” until just after 2 p.m. School officials say students there will be dismissed on time with additional security in place.

Under a “white lockdown”, the following measures are taken for student safety:

  • Classes continue, lunch served
  • Students can’t move through building without adult escort
  • Blinds are shut
  • Visitors must have proper ID to enter school
  • Indoor recess

It is not known in which direction the two suspects fled.

We’re monitoring updates on this story as it develops.
