Man missing after Wichita police chase

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities have stopped searching a water-filled sandpit in south Wichita for a man who may have jumped in while running from police.

KWCH-TV reports the search was halted Friday after rescue teams in boats spent several hours searching but failed to find anything.

Wichita police Lieutenant Chris Halloran says officers tried to stop the man's car for traffic violations about 2 a.m. Friday. The car sped off and eventually crashed through a chain link fence.

The man got out and ran, and police believe he jumped into the pond.

Two other people in the car during the chase were taken into custody.
