A suspect appears to have given Omaha Police the slip overnight; officers searched the underbrush along both sides of Highway 75 during the manhunt but came up empty.

It started just after 4AM Sunday when officers tried to pull over the driver of this SUV. The driver bailed out of the vehicle in the Spencer Street Projects area and ran west toward the highway.

Officers set up a perimeter around the area then searched for their suspect on foot checking for any hiding places.

They did not locate the driver.

Officers would not say why they were searching for the man but police scanners indicated officers may have had a lead in a recent homicide.
