Authorities are searching for a fugitive mom they say led officers on a wild chase with her child in tow.

Erica Barreiro-Rapp, 33, is wanted on several felony warrants in Kentucky, including drug possession, carrying conceal weapons, and tampering with evidence.

Officers in Springdale, Ohio said they began pursuing her in a brown Honda Odyssey after she fled court on May 4.

The wild chase was caught on dash-cams as police say Barreiro-Rapp tried to elude them by driving through the front yards of multiple houses, driving over the top of a concrete barrier and then running a red light.

Police said they terminated the chase after confirming a child was in the vehicle.

Later that day, officers discovered her minivan in a hotel parking lot, where a guest at the hotel told authorities Barreiro-Rapp had entered his room and jumped out the first-story window with her child.

Barreiro-Rapp remains on the run. If you have information on where police can find her, you're ask to call Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040.
