A manhunt continues for individuals who fled from police during a traffic stop in Fort Deposit last night.

Early reports stated 4 individuals fled from police, but now police are not specifying the number of suspects on the run.

Lt. Campbell with Fort Deposit Police confirmed around 6 PM last night officers attempted to stop a vehicle. The vehicle then fled onto Interstate 65 North and was seen exiting onto the Letohatchee Exit ending up on Highway 97. The suspects then abandoned the vehicle.

Campbell confirmed that the search was called off last night due to heavy rain. Police have recovered the vehicle and are currently in the field investigating the matter. Fort Deposit, Lowndes Co. Sheriffs and troopers assisted last night and they will continue to help tonight.

No additional information is immediately known. WSFA 12 News will have more information as it becomes available. If you know any information that can help authorities, call the Ft. Deposit Police Dept. at 334-301-8063.
