BEND, OR -- The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office continues to search for a man who ran from a car chase, Tuesday night. A deputy attempted to stop the car for traffic violations near the Deschutes River Woods Store, just before 10 p.m. But, the suspect drove off. He took several dirt roads, ignoring the deputy. Eventually, he drove through a property on Comanche Circle, a dead-end road, running over rocks and railroad ties, causing his air bags to deploy.


The suspect ran from the scene and, despite a search by the Sheriff's Office, Bend, Sunriver and State Police, along with a Redmond PD K9 unit, he was not found.  Two passengers identified the suspect as 20-year-old Shawn Ison. 
Investigators found miscellaneous drug paraphernalia in the car, but otherwise don't know why he took off. Anyone with information on Ison's whereabouts is asked to call non-emergency dispatch at 541-693-6911. 
WEDNESDAY MORNING UPDATE: Just after 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, the Sheriff's Office received a call that a man matching Shawn Ison's description was walking on Highway 97 in Terrebonne. A deputy contacted the man who confirmed his own identity. During the investigation, Ison ran toward Lower Bridge Estates. Law enforcement set up a perimeter and began searching for the suspect. A citizen called to report a man was hiding in a large open area used as a drain field for the neighborhood. After a brief foot chase, Ison was arrested without further incident.
