CAPE GIRARDEAU COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - Police continue the search for the driver who led them on a high speed chase on Interstate 55 in southeast Missouri Tuesday night.
The pursuit began in Cape Girardeau County.
That's where police officers and members of the SEMO Drug Task Force attempted to stop a red Dodge Durango, but the driver sped away.
The chase continued at high speeds into Scott County where officers set out spike strips near exit 82 in Benton.

Officers say they know who they're looking for and it's just a matter of time.
