MANATEE COUNTY - A manhunt is underway in Manatee County where sheriffs deputies are looking for a teen involved in an overnight carjacking and high speed police chase.  Three other teens involved have already been arrested.

Police say a Kia SUV was stolen around 11pm Thursday in Sarasota.  The stolen vehicle was spotted later in Bradenton and authorities attempted to pull over the car near 63rd Avenue and 9th Street.  The SUV took off and a police chase began.

The driver eventually lost control of the SUV and ended up in the front yard of a home.  The suspects jumped out of the car and ran towards Harlee Middle School.  Three teens were caught while one remains on the  run.
