JANESVILLE, Wis. — Officials in Janesville are searching for a Madison man who reportedly led a state trooper on a chase over the weekend before crashing and running from the scene.

In a news release, the Rock County Sheriff’s Office said a state trooper tried to stop 27-year-old Christopher Miller for speeding around 2:20 a.m. Saturday. Miller then hit a traffic light in Janesville and kept driving until his vehicle was disabled on Interstate 39/90 near Avalon Road.

At that point, the release said, he ran away from the scene and hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

Two days later, the sheriff’s office “received information from Miller’s family that they have not had contact with Miller since the incident and that he could be missing,” the release said. Authorities searched the area but did not find Miller.

Miller, a father of three, is described as being 6 feet tall, weighing 178 pounds, and having black hair and brown eyes. He also has a tattoo of “Tammy” on his chest and a scar on his thumb. He was last seen wearing a black sweatshirt.

Anyone with information is being asked to call the Rock County 911 Communications Center at 608-757-2244 or the Madison Police Department at 608-255-2345.
