Authorities have recovered a child involved in an Amber Alert case and arrested a 46-year-old Colorado woman after a pursuit that ended southwest of Lincoln.

Around 10 p.m. Thursday, a trooper attempted to stop a 2012 Nissan Pathfinder for speeding on U.S. Highway 6 near Sutton in southeast Nebraska, the Nebraska State Patrol said. The driver refused to stop and accelerated, leading to the pursuit.

Speeds reached 115 mph as the SUV passed through Fillmore County into Saline County on Highway 6, the patrol said.

Saline County Sheriff’s Office deputies put down spike strips, bringing the Nissan to a stop just east of Friend around 10:30 p.m., the patrol said.

The Thornton, Colorado, woman was taken into custody and the missing child was found inside the vehicle, the patrol said.
