Bainbridge-- Searchers found the car, but Terrell Baker remained on the loose. Investigators say after being pulled over for reckless driving on Highway 309 South of Bainbridge.  Baker and Michael Ray Anderson ran off. Deputies captured them.

A small child in the back seat was left behind and was not in a safety seat. Deputies took Anderson to jail and waited with DFCS for the child's mother to pick her up.  

 "While one suspect was in route to jail the other suspect, Terrell Baker was in the rear of one of the patrol cars, handcuffed and behind the secured partition, and at some point in time, while handcuffed, he broke through the secured partition and sped away and stole one of the patrol cars," said Lt. Rick Ashley.

Deputies cracked that partition to give Baker some air. He pushed it open and slipped through a one foot by one foot hole.  A Georgia State Patrol helicopter crew located the car about 2 miles away.

There was at least one weapon in the car. Fortunately... authorities found that gun... so they don't believe Baker is armed. The Sheriff's Office is offering a reward for information on the whereabouts of Terrell Baker.
