Sumiton man missing after 1-sided police standoff

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Officials thought they had cornered Christopher Laye in a mobile home and spent eight hours trying to talk him out before discovering the home was empty.

Cullman County Sheriff Tyler Roden said the chase began Saturday
morning after Laye fled in a police car following his arrest.

Roden said Laye hitched a ride from a Sumiton man by posing as
an officer. They were pulled over but Laye managed to flee in the
man's Jeep while police were arresting the driver.

Laye was followed to a mobile home in Arkadelphia where
authorities in a helicopter saw him enter but no one saw him leave.
