GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) -- Barton County authorities have stopped searching for a parole violator last seen in central Kansas.
The Barton County Sheriff's Department called off the search Sunday afternoon for Michael Aaron Jayne, who is wanted for a parole violation in Oregon.
Undersheriff Larry Holliday told The Hutchinson News (http://bit.ly/Op79kI ) that federal authorities confirmed Jayne was out of the area.
The 30-year-old Jayne reportedly led officers on a chase in Rooks County on Thursday night. A pickup stolen from Rooks County on Thursday was discovered near Cheyenne Bottoms on Friday. Another vehicle was reported stolen Friday evening from the Barton Hills area.
Multiple law enforcement agencies were involved in the search, using aircraft and police dogs.
