Barton, Vernon county deputies, Highway Patrol searching wooded area for suspect following high speed chase

(From the Barton County Sheriff's Office)

On June 20th 2018 the Vernon County Sheriff's Office was involved in a high-speed car chase Southbound on 43 Highway. 

The pursuit entered into Barton County with Barton County deputies and the Liberal Police Chief trying to get into position to help. 

Sheriff Shaw was able to put down a spike strip on W highway close to the intersection of DD highway. The vehicle traveled over the spikes and got three flat tires. The pursuit continued to NW 30th LN where the subject fled on foot from the vehicle. 

Deputies from Vernon County, Barton County, Missouri State Highway Patrol Troopers and the Lamar Police Department assisted in searching for the man. 

At this time he has not been found and is believed to be in a wooded area between V highway and DD hwy. If anybody sees anybody walking in this area you are encouraged to call the Sheriffs office.
