ROAD blocks were erected, a house was searched and a helicopter flew over the small community of Booie on Sunday.
Police were searching for a man, believed to be armed and barefoot.
Local police have appealed for public assistance to help locate a man they wish to speak to in relation to an incident in the area.
The search for the man began after he fled on foot from a residence in Kingaroy on Sunday morning.
In an attempt to locate the man, a rural Booie residence was searched and two road blocks set up at the northern and southern ends of Shellbacks Rd.
A helicopter was also used to help ground units in attempting to locate the man.
Senior Sergeant Duane Frank said a number of vehicles and police had been used in the search.
He said police believed the man had left the area, but has asked people to continue to keep an eye out.
The news of the wanted man exploded on social media sites, with the Queensland Police Service Facebook status shared more than 475 times.
A police media spokesman would not specify what the man was armed with, but warned the public not to approach him if he was seen.
"Anybody who recognises this man is urged to contact 000," he said.
