NORTH RIDGEVILLE, OH (WOIO) -

Monday morning a Westlake patrolman tried to question a male sleeping in a pickup truck at the Hampton Inn on Detroit Rd. The guy took off westbound on Detroit Rd. into Avon near Avon Commons, where Westlake PD called off the pursuit.

About an hour later, at 4:44 a.m., North Ridgeville police reported pursuing the same vehicle eastbound on Center Ridge Rd. and that one of the truck's tires had been deflated by their stop-sticks. The vehicle then became disabled on Center Ridge Rd. east of Dover Center Rd. in Westlake and the driver ran off.

North Olmsted PD, Rocky River PD, and the Lorain Co. Sheriff Office K9 were called in to assist in searching for the unknown suspect. The PA plate on the truck was found to have been stolen in South Strabane Township, PA; the truck itself was also stolen from Weirton, WV. At 9:56 a.m., the search of the area for the suspect was called off.

The suspect driver has since been identified through evidence in the truck as Brian James Adkison, 23, of Columbia, MO. He is an August 10 escapee from the Caldwell County Detention Center in Kingston, MO where he faces kidnapping, domestic violence, and violating a temporary protection order charges. He is also wanted in Boone County, MO for rape and burglary charges.  

He is 6'0 165lbs, short light brown hair brown eyes, has a scruffy beard and was wearing black shorts and a light color t-shirt. 

If anyone sees Brian Adkison, call 9-1-1. He is not known to be armed but is a wanted felon.
