BAKER CITY, Ore. (AP) - Baker County officials don’t know when a pickup truck will be removed from a remote creek, but they do know who put it there.

The Baker City Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1FsdoOL ) that the 1997 Dodge truck has been sitting in Alder Creek since it landed there after a 28-mile chase in the Elkhorn Mountains May 12.

A suspect took off from Baker City in the truck, ending up about 12 miles west near Marble Creek Pass. At the end of the chase, the suspect had descended 800 vertical feet. Sheriff Travis Ash says it will take a helicopter to remove the truck.

Because the truck is on public land in the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest, the owner, who lives in Idaho, is responsible for removal.
