Altoona police are searching for a Blair County man accused of stealing a vehicle early Monday morning and then fleeing on foot across Interstate 99 after being stopped by authorities.
Police say 36-year-old Travis Pfahler allegedly stole a vehicle, around 6 a.m. Monday, that was reportedly “warming up” outside a residence.
Investigators say officers searched the area and located the vehicle, where a traffic stop was attempted at the intersection of Fairway Drive and South 27th Street.
Police say Pfahler then parked the vehicle at the Logan Hills Apartment Complex and fled on foot into a wooded area between Fairway Drive and Interstate 99.
Authorities say several witnesses reported that Pfahler was last seen crossing the highway in the direction of PNG Stadium.
Anyone with information regarding Pfahler’s whereabouts is asked to call 911 or the Altoona Police Department at (814) 949-2490.
