A 22-year-old Tonganoxie man has been charged with fleeing and attempting to elude after he allegedly led police on a chase May 9 and then abandoned his pickup.
Officials have not found Nicholas Dean Meyer, who last was seen where the chase ended, near 262nd Street and Loring Road, northeast of Lawrence, said police Chief Jeff Brandau.
Brandau gave this account: About 2 p.m. May 9, a woman went to Tonganoxie police station and said two armed men had tried to restrain her in Lawrence. The woman and a friend drove to Tonganoxie, and the woman said the two men followed. She told officers the men were outside the police station. A 22-year-old Baldwin City man was questioned by police and released. The Tonganoxie man, however, took off at a high rate of speed.
