WICHITA FALLS, TX -

Wichita Falls Police say an overnight chase led to the search of a man and young girl.

Officers say it all started Friday around 11:55 p.m. when they tried to pull over Jose Manuel Muro on Central Freeway and North 8th street.

They say Muro refused to stop and that is when the chase began.

Officers were unable to catch Muro and police say they called off the pursuit for safety reasons.

Then on Saturday at 12:05 a.m. police received a call about a rollover accident near Petrolia Road and North Highway 79. The vehicle involved matched the description of the one Muro was driving.

Police say witnesses told them a young girl was ejected from that vehicle, and the driver was seen picking the child up and fleeing on foot into a nearby wooded area.

Around 7:45 a.m. officers say they found Muro and that young girl near the area the suspect last fled to.

She was taken to the hospital. No word on her condition.

Muro is charged with evading arrest. This case is still under investigation.
