About six occupants fled a sport utility vehicle after a high-speed chase near Telferner on Saturday, said Victoria County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Justin Marr.

At 10:30 a.m., the SUV was traveling north on U.S. Highway 59 when an officer attempted to make a traffic stop near Hill Road. The car chase ended about 3 miles later near Beck Road when the occupants fled on foot.

Police searched for the people suspected of being in the country illegally but did not find them. Police ended the search and continued to patrol the area throughout the day.
