LENEXA, KS (KCTV) -- A manhunt had officers with guns drawn early Friday morning, and that search is still on-going for the missing suspect.
Lenexa police say they tried to stop a stolen car, and it when didn’t stop for officers, they disengaged. The Kansas Highway Patrol then tried to stop it a short time later, and the driver, again, refused to stop for troopers.

Lenexa police assisted troopers in trying to locate the driver but were unable to find him.

Officers called the search off in the area about noon once they realized the suspect wasn’t there.
