SALINA, Kan. (AP) - Law enforcement officers are searching for a man involved in a police chase who fled and left a child behind in the car.

Saline County Sheriff Glen Kochanowski says the chase began Thursday morning when a deputy tried to stop a car in north Salina. The ensuing chase reached speeds up to 110 mph before the vehicle went off the interstate and eventually stopped. Two men jumped out and ran into a nearby field, leaving a young boy in the car.

The Salina Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2a1L82u ) one of the men was quickly arrested but the other has eluded police. The child was not hurt and has been returned to his mother.

The search near where the vehicle stopped has ended but Kochanowski says officers know the man’s identity.
