Colorado Pair Who Fled Troopers Near Alliance Found in Hay Springs

Posted: Updated:

Authorities say a 31-year-old Colorado man who was chased across portions of the Nebraska Panhandle on Thursday has been located.

The Nebraska State Patrol says Ryan Riddle and 22-year-old Rebecca Melzo, both of Greeley, Colo., were taken into custody Sunday morning at a convenience store in Hay Springs.

Authorities began searching for Riddle and Melzo after they evaded an officer attempting a traffic stop near Alliance. Troopers and other law enforcement officers spent the day searching for the pair, occasionally catching glimpses of their vehicle until it became disabled and they took off on foot.

Both were taken to Chadron Hospital to be examined after being taken into custody.

Riddle was then taken to Box Butte County Jail on numerous charges. Melzo was not detained.
