Law officers, as well as two police helicopters, on Tuesday afternoon were searching the area where the motorcycle was abandoned near the 2700 block of 116th Street NE west of Marysville.
During the search, which started around 1:30 p.m, two deputies were stung several times after they disturbed a nest of bees or hornets, Snohomish County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Shari Ireton said. The search was suspended about four hours later.
The suspect was described as a white man about 6 feet tall who had brown hair and was wearing a dirty T-shirt.
Both deputies were treated by medics at the scene.
