According to KSLA, folks in the Ada-Tayler area have been advised to stay inside as a manhunt continues for two men.
The manhunt began at about 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 15 in the western part of Bienville Parish.
A Ford Pickup occupied by two men was clocked at 99 mph on Interstate 20.
They drove west into Webster Parish when a deputy fell in behind them.
They crossed the median and doubled back into Bienville Parish.
They did the same thing a few more times then finally took the Ada-Taylor exit off I-20, went down a dirt road and drove off into a creek.
That’s when the two men, both described as being in their early 20s and one wearing all black, bailed out of the truck.
Deputies learned that the truck was stolen from Mississippi.
At one point, Sheriff John Ballance said, they got a report from someone who said two people were trying to get into their vehicle.
Law officers, a Louisiana State Police helicopter, drones and tracking dogs from Wade Correctional Center have been searching for them ever since.
Sheriff Ballance said they would be out there all night if need be because they are worried about the safety of folks who live in the area.
