Police are searching for this man.

Halton police are continuing their search for a “dangerous” man who has been on the run since last week.

The search for Tom Shade continues following the initial manhunt that began on Friday (May 10) and unfolded following a vehicle collision that took place that afternoon.

Shade, 41, is wanted for dangerous driving, fleeing from police and failing to remain at the scene of a collision. Police say the suspect fled on foot after police tried to arrest him at the accident scene.

Initially, the search centred around the area of New Street and Dynes Road but later moved to the lakefront between Guelph Line and Walkers Line.

“But…it’s unlikely that he hasn’t left that area at this time,” police said today (May 14).

On Friday, schools in the area were told to lock their doors over fears the man was looking for a place to hide. That precaution was lifted at the end of the school day.

While searching for the man police say they located a loaded firearm, drugs, and other discarded property. They warned residents via social media to avoid him if spotted. “He is on foot and should be considered dangerous. Call 911,” police said.

Patrol and tactical officers, as well as the K9 unit, have all been involved in the search at various times.

Numerous residents have contacted police with potential sightings.
