Wanted suspect involved in pursuit, fled into cornfield

WYNOT, Neb. -- A northeast Nebraska sheriff's office is looking for a suspect involved a pursuit Tuesday evening. 

Authorities in Cedar County say they were notified of a pursuit entering Nebraska from South Dakota Tuesday evening. 

Sheriff's deputies picked up the chase west of Wynot, and stopped the fleeing car using spike strips.

A woman was arrested at the scene, but the man driving the car was identified as 34-year-old Nathan Murphee of Yankton, South Dakota, fled into a cornfield and was not found. 

Murphee is 6' and 150 pounds with brown eyes and hair. He was last seen wearing only red shorts.
