LEAVITT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Authorities in northwestern Michigan say they’re still on the lookout for up to 20 cattle that escaped after a fence broke.

A farmer in Oceana County’s Leavitt Township reported the beef cattle missing Tuesday, saying they got out through a break in a fence that occurred sometime in January.

TV stations WPBN and WTOM say the missing cattle range from 200 to 1,000 pounds. The sheriff’s department and the stations say there were no developments in the search Wednesday evening.

The farm is about 25 miles southeast of Ludington.
