Police have ended a massive hillside search in Northern California for a man who they say fled after dropping his dead 5-month-old son off at a local hospital.

Police are still looking for Casimir George Janusz, 36, of Ukiah, after a manhunt in the hills west of Hopland proved unsuccessful.

Ukiah Police Capt. Trent Taylor told the Press Democrat that the three-day search, which ended Monday, was exhaustive.

Police say Janusz brought his "unresponsive" son to the Ukiah Valley Medical Center at 9:26 a.m. Wednesday, and the child was pronounced dead. The search for Janusz was sparked when he allegedly left the hospital, drove to his family's ranch property in the Hopland area and abandoned his vehicle, according to Ukiah police.

Ukiah police officials and the Mendocino County Sheriff's Department have been working "nonstop in an effort to locate Janusz," police said in a statement.

The  cause of the child's death remained under investigation.

Anyone with information on Janusz's whereabouts was asked to call Ukiah police at (707) 463-6262.
