The Waldoboro Police Department is seeking the public's help in locating a wanted man who evaded officers by escaping through a hole in the floor of his home in the Maine town. 

Officers were dispatched to 36-year-old Brian Bennett's Flanders Corner Road home on Wednesday to take him into custody on an active arrest warrant out of Belfast District Court. 

Police say Bennett locked himself inside the residence when officers arrived and refused to surrender. After gaining entry to the home, police found that Bennett fled through a hole in the floor. 

Bennett was last seen running down his driveway. Lincoln County sheriffs attempted to track him with a police dog but were ultimately unsuccessful. 

Anyone with information regarding Bennett's whereabouts is asked to contact Waldoboro police.
