all-points bulletin

Hi !
How would you translate "all-points bulletin"?
"An all-points bulletin was out for his arrest".
They speak about it on the news
and I think it gives information about a suspect the police are trying to arrest. In my dictionary, it says : “Message à toutes les patrouilles”. I have no idea how to say it in French. Maybe : "Toutes les patrouilles de police étaient mobilisées pour l’arrêter / Il y avait un message à toutes les patrouilles pour son arrestation." Or : "Ils faisaient un appel à témoin dans l’espoir de le retrouver"… Could you help ?
Thanks!
