Bronson Elementary School was in lockdown for 45 minutes Monday morning after a man spotted on campus fled.

The Levy County Sheriff's Office said they are on the lookout for a white male, 5-feet, 7-inches tall possibly in his mid-50s with salt and pepper hair, and facial hair. He was wearing a green or brown shirt and blue jeans.

The man was reported to school officials at about 10:30 a.m. as being near Building 200 which is close to the school buses. For the safety of students and faculty the school was placed on lock down until school officials received the all clear from Sheriff's deputies.

 The Levy County Sheriff's Office was on the scene within minutes of the call and conducted a thorough search of the school, school property and immediate area but the suspect was not found. Deputies  continued looking for any suspicious persons in the vicinity of the school and the school and remained in a heightened level of alert for the remainder of the school day as a precaution.
