A man whose trip to a national park in northern Michigan with his children sparked a 12-hour manhunt has been charged with misdemeanor domestic violence.

Daniel Gerard Elliott was arraigned Wednesday in Emmet County District Court. Judge James Erhart raised his bond from the $10,000 set after his arrest to $100,000. The 50-year-old resident of Orchard Lake must get a mental health evaluation before being released.

A pretrial hearing was scheduled for Sept. 11.

Police said Elliott and his wife had a physical confrontation Sunday during a visit to Petoskey. He then took his three young children to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, where they spent the night and were found Monday night after a lengthy search.

A phone call seeking comment was left with Elliott's court-appointed attorney, Kyle Legel.
