Man connected to Amber Alert in custody after chase, Baraboo police say


UPDATE (WKOW) - Baraboo police said the man connected to an earlier Amber Alert is in custody after a chase Wednesday.

Austin Dailey, 19, is in custody after a chase in Green County that ended with a crash in Illinois, according to a press release from police.

On Tuesday, a Baraboo police officer pulled over a stolen Dodge Journey, but the driver sped off before the cop could get to the driver's window. However, the officer did see Dailey allegedly behind the wheel.

Dailey has a warrant out for his arrest for being a Huber walk away.

The officer also allegedly saw a teen girl in the car as well, according to the police department. The girl had been reported missing.

Baraboo police put out an Amber Alert and canceled it shortly after when the girl returned home.

She is now home safe, according to police.
