MCLENNAN COUNTY, Texas (KWTX) Officers from several area agencies were searching late Monday afternoon for a driver who ran after a traffic stop in McLennan County.

But after two hours the search came up empty-handed.

The search was focused on an area near the intersection of Spring Valley Road and Cotton Belt Parkway.

McLennan County deputies, Texas Department of Public Safety troopers and police officers from Lorena and Moody were involved in the search.

A MCSO helicopter pilot also scanned the area from the air.

A passenger in the SUV was not detained.

She remained at the scene and the vehicle was towed away.
