The South Milwaukee Police Department is asking for the public’s help in finding 2-year-old Kendra Faith Brown

A man with a stolen van led police on a chase through three states with a child in the vehicle, police say.

Indiana State Police say the suspect is the 2-year-old's non-custodial parent, 30-year-old Kenneth O. Brown. He then drove off and got away from police. Police say he stopped at a Walmart in Watseka, Illinois and told somebody he kidnapped a girl and stole a van.

Police used stop sticks to slow down the van, then an officer rammed the van from behind causing it to come to a stop.

In Indiana, Newton County deputies chased Brown to I-65, when Indiana State Police get involved. The chase continued into Tippecanoe County at speeds "in excess of 90 miles per hour", police said.

Police blocked the roadway, but he drove through the roadblock, crossed the median, and continued traveling northbound in the southbound lanes into oncoming traffic.

About 5 a.m., near Lafayette, the auto sustained a flat tire. For an unknown reason, he slammed on the brakes, and a Newton County deputy rear-ended the vehicle, causing it to spin into a barrier wall.

When the van was stopped, Brown held the child at knifepoint, police say. Brown was taken to a hospital, then lifelined to St. Vincent.

The 2-year-old had cuts and scrapes, but is OK. She is in the care of the Indiana Department of Children and Family Services until her family can take custody.

Anyone with information is asked to call the South Milwaukee Police Department immediately at 414-768-8060.

Police vehicles from Tippecanoe County and Newton County were damaged during the incident.
