The Fond du Lac County Sheriff's Office is looking for a suspect in a high-speed chase.

On Jan. 14, at 9:46 p.m., a deputy spotted a car traveling at a high rate of speed on I-41 near Lost Arrow Rd. The deputy was unable to stop the car due to high speeds.

A short time later, the vehicle was spotted traveling at a high speed south on Rolling Meadows Dr from County Highway D in the city of Fond du Lac.

Again, the driver eluded a deputy and continued north on Hickory St.

Officials put out tire deflation devices, but that didn't stop the driver. Deputies called off the chase in the area of Hickory and Western Ave.

The driver remains on the loose. The Fond du Lac County Sheriff's Office says the driver is considered armed and dangerous and people should not try to make contact with that person.

The vehicle had Illinois license plate BT18257. It's described as a 2016 Dodge Challenger SXT, dark in color--possibly black.

The Sheriff's Office says the driver is facing charges of felony eluding, reckless drive and speeding.
