HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -

Police are investigating a report of an attempted abduction early Tuesday that ended with the suspect escaping after a high speed chase.

A 50-year-old woman known to Hamilton police said a man in a newer-model white minivan tried to put her in the vehicle about 3:15 a.m. in the area of 3rd and Maple streets.

She managed to get away and was not hurt.

Officers pursued the motorist along Ohio 4 into Fairfield. The suspect drove at high rates of speed exceeding 70 mph for about three minutes before police supervisors called off the chase for safety reasons.

The suspect remains at large. He is described as white and in his late 20s. He wore an orange t-shirt and has dark hair.

Police spokesman Sgt. Ed Buns said authorities do not think the suspect's white van is the same one involved in two attempted abductions of children in Northern Kentucky last month.

Police in Edgewood and Grant County described that vehicle as a white, square-bodied white panel or work van.

Anyone with information on the latest case is asked to call Hamilton police: 513-868-5811.
