Seward County authorities searching for suspect who escaped from custody

SEWARD, Neb. -- Seward County officials are searching for a man who escaped from their custody over the weekend.

Authorities say the Seward County Drug Task Force stopped a vehicle Saturday. They say a man who identified himself as Natanael Rivas-Visoso was placed into custody for possession of contraband at that time.

But authorities say while they were searching his vehicle, Rivas-Visoso was able to slip out of one handcuff and climb out of the patrol car, fleeing on foot across I-80.

As of Sunday, authorities said he had not been found.

Rivas-Visoso is about 5'8" with brown eyes, black hair and a black goatee. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and a white t-shirt.

Anyone who comes into contact with him is asked to call 911.
