Posted: Updated:

The Nevada Highway Patrol, with the help of several other agencies, is searching for the man who led them and other law enforcement agencies on a high speed chase overnight.

NHP says just after 11:00 p.m. on Thursday night, troopers noticed a white Dodge Charger driving suspiciously on Highway 50, near Silver Stage.

When the trooper tried to stop the vehicle, NHP says the driver then turned his lights off and drove toward Fernley.

A short time later, the Lyon Co. Sheriff's Office continued a high-speed chase through Carson City.

NHP says they tried to spike the car's tires multiple times, but were unsuccessful and lost track of the car in Washoe Valley.

Multiple agencies searched for the car including the Washoe County RAVEN helicopter.

After 1:00 a.m. Friday morning, the Carson City Sheriff's Office found the car at a residence on Heaven Hill Way in Carson City.

They say 4 people were inside the car. The driver, a black man with short hair, two black women and a white woman.

NHP says one woman stayed on scene at the residence in north Carson City. She was questioned, then released.

They say they are not searching for the other two women at this time, but the driver is still wanted.
