We have received several calls today in reference to a helicopter being seen flying in the area of Elevator Road & Willowbrook Road in the early evening hours last night.
Roscoe Police did respond to a welfare check for an individual and eventually called the helicopter to assist. The subject was later located and the incident concluded at approx. 7:30pm last night.
Roscoe Police Department would like to thank the Winnebago County Sheriffs Department, Harlem Roscoe Fire Department and the REACT helicopter crew for their assistance.
Several fans have contacted us and said there is a helicopter circling above the Roscoe and S Beloit area. They also are reporting a lot of sirens in the area.
Sounds like they are searching for someone. They just said “The chopper does not have eyes on the subject” on the airwaves as we type this.

Unknown what is going on. If you have any information, please email us at RockfordScanner@Gmail.com
Update: They are out with the alleged subject. They said he does not have any injuries. (Unknown what that means) But they are transporting him to ta local hospital. They are taking the comms via cell phone, so not sure how much more updates we will be able to bring you.
They were pinging his cell phone, and was able to track him. Still unknown why they were searching for the subject.
