The Lincoln County Sheriff's Department is searching for a man they say kidnapped a woman, led police on a high-speed chase, and escaped.

Jesse James Abee allegedly kidnapped his ex-girlfriend from her home in Stanford early Monday morning. Investigators say he forced the woman in his car and began driving erratically down highway 1247 in Lincoln County.

A Sheriff's deputy spotted the man and tried to pull him over unsuccessfully; sparking a high-speed chase. The chase ended when Abee reportedly crashed his car on Cemetery Rd. just outside Stanford. But, police weren't able to capture the man. He ran off, leaving his victim behind.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Jesse James Abee is asked to contact police.
