The Sawyer County Sheriff's Office is looking for two people who robbed a bank in Stone Lake on Friday afternoon.

The males wearing masks entered the Shell Lake State Bank branch in Stone Lake at around 2:45 p.m., got cash, and fled in a car.  Deputies located the car unoccupied a few miles away from the bank.

No one was injured during the robbery.

The suspects were still at large as of Saturday morning.  Authorities asked anyone with information to call the Sawyer County Sheriff's Office.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is also working on the case.
