Does anyone know why there was a helicopter was flying over Encinitas/Leucadia at 11 pm last night announcing a description of a man (5'5", 140 pounds, blond hair)??

They sometimes do this when people with mental or physical disorders get lost from their families and homes. Sometimes they'll say "autistic," or "alzheimers" in the description, but sometimes the family wants privacy so they just describe the guy in the area they think they'll be. Nothing to worry about, if its like a violent person they'd issue warnings about it.

I called the non emergency police line and was told to lock my doors and windows, do not answer the door- because the police were looking for a burglar suspect. This was at 1:15 after 2 hours of thinking a helicopter might land on my roof!

I watched the helicopter circle around the 5/Santa Fe exit and could hear them speaking through the loud speaker briefly. Then at around 1:15 they move near downtown Encinitas and kept the spot light on one spot for about 10-15 minutes. I am in Cardiff of Rubenstein, so I could not make out exactly where they were. Could not find anything on the news sites.

I woke up to two helicopters flying in a circle with a huge spotlight that literally shone in my face through my upstairs bedroom window. They were flying for literally hours. I thought they were going to land on my roof. I could only hear the loudspeaker twice. Seriously, I could hear them for hours. I called the Encinitas Sheriff's Office this morning but they don't open until 8am. This happens occasionally over my neighborhood near Swami's. I did not see any patrol cars driving on my street so who knows what was going on. I did not hear them say to keep doors locked. I understand the necessity to look for criminals or lost people but I did not sleep at all.

I live on Summit and we were up from 1 to 3 AM watching the helicopters circle right over our house, really low. Pretty much above the SRF field/garden on the west side of Summit, and down towards the water.
At one point they got on a loud speaker saying "if you shine that light at us again, you will go to jail. We are part of a rescue effort" I assume someone was shining a light back at the helicopter and they did not like that. I wonder what the "rescue effort" was for???
Anyone know??
