ALLEGAN COUNTY, Mich. — As the search for Harold Knight continues, authorities are now looking into the possibility the man might be hiding out in a Maine Amish community.

Knight, 67, is wanted in connection to the murder of his wife, Sara Knight, who was found dead in the couple’s home in Ganges Township on January 13.

Allegan County Sheriff’s Detective Craig Gardiner tells FOX 17 that Knight had an interest in Amish communities and read a lot about them. Family members tipped them off about Knight’s curiosity, but detectives also found books in Knight’s pole barn, that led them to believe it could be a possibility.

The last sighting of Knight was in Rangeley, Maine back in January. Gardiner says there are three Amish communities  in that area. The detective believes it would be a great place for someone to hide out.  He says Maine State Police have been checking in to the communities.
