BETHEL PARK, Pa. - A SWAT situation in Bethel Park Sunday night came to an end overnight without anyone in custody.

Police said they were called to a home on Surrey Woods Road around 6:30 p.m. to serve an involuntary commitment on a man with mental health problems.

But after several hours police discovered the man was not inside of the home.

"About five hours into the even we discovered that there was nobody in the house. The house was secure and we will make every attempt now to serve the involuntary commitment," Bethel Park police Chief John Mackey said.

Police have not released the man's name, but officers said they continue to search for him.
