KX News has more information from Emmons County Sheriff’s Office regarding the search for the man who was involved in a high-speed pursuit and eventually fled on foot into a sunflower field 3 miles west of Hazelton on Sunday.

The man wanted is 25-year-old Brandon Kuhn. Authorities tell us Kuhn already had an active warrant out for various probation violations. He was last seen wearing a black T-shirt and blue jeans.

Emmons County Sheriff’s Department encourages everyone to make sure they remove the keys from any parked vehicles and to call 911 should they see anyone matching this description. They do not believe the public is in any immediate danger


According to Burleigh County Sheriff’s Department, a man was pulled over for a traffic violation around 10:30 a.m. before he drove southeast toward Emmons County.

The suspect eventually got out of his vehicle and fled on foot into a sunflower field in Hazleton, where he is still believed to be.

Once out of Burleigh County jurisdiction, the pursuit ended, and Emmons County authorities and the North Dakota Highway Patrol were notified. Highway Patrol used a helicopter to search for the suspect.

Currently, there are charges pending and no arrests made, since he hasn’t been located yet. KX News contacted Emmons County Sheriff’s Department and as of Sunday evening has not heard back.
