A possibly armed domestic violence suspect who is believed to have kidnapped two young children in an RV has led Los Angeles police on a dramatic chase.
Officers believe the suspect, who may be armed with a gun, was involved in a domestic violence incident and made off with the children, aged 11 months and 3 years.
Their mother reported the incident to authorities who failed to catch him as he headed towards the Hollywood area.
He later reached Kern County on the freeway where he remains at large.
More police have been called in to assist with the chase.
