Police in Wisconsin Rapids are asking for the public’s help locating a woman who fled from officers that were investigating a possible child abuse case on Wednesday.
The 2-month-old child has not been located.
Police are searching for Haley N. Pelot, who is a white woman described as 5’1″ tall, 120 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes. She has no permanent address.
According to a department Facebook post, police were trying to contact Pelot as part of the investigation into the child’s welfare.

After determining that the child could be in the vehicle, officers terminated the chase.
The vehicle is described as a silver 2002 Toyta Camry with a black front bumper and Wisconsin license plate AHY5345.
