SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Police have released a man they detained after a manhunt that shut down one of Northern California's busiest freeways for six hours.

Sacramento County sheriff's spokesman Jason Ramos says the armed carjacker who stole two trucks and a tractor Friday morning remains at large.

The gunman seemed to disappear around noon after abandoning his most recently hijacked vehicle, a brown truck.

Around 1 p.m., police detained a man a witness believed was sitting in the brown truck after it was stolen.

But by late afternoon, officers had released the man, saying the witness may have been mistaken.
