WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Authorities are searching for a motorist who fled from police and then drove a car into the Arkansas River in Wichita.

Wichita police Officer Charley Davidson says officers began pursuing the vehicle Sunday after the driver was seen leaving an area where a disturbance involving a weapon had been reported. The Wichita Eagle reports that officers ended the chase because the car was being driver recklessly. The car was spotted in the river a short time later. The car was empty, and the driver couldn’t be found.
