The Gazette received several reports from readers about Eagle 1 flying over schererville yesterday.  The Gazette has now confirmed that this situation did not involve commission of a crime.  The police department had received a credible report that an individual might harm himself and responded. The manhunt was in response to that situation.

While we do not wish to report on this story in particular, the topic of suicide and depression is a serious issue.  We thank the Schererville Police and the office of Lake County Sheriff John Buncich for acting decisively and appropriately in this situation.  Our prayers go out to this individual and anyone who is suffering from depression.  If you feel that someone you know is in imminent danger from a mental health issue, please call 9-1-1.

Regional Mental Health also has a hotline for less imminent emergency situations.  That number is 219.769.4005.  You can get more information on how to get help for yourself or a loved one on the at Regional Mental Health website.
