Police are search for a man after a high speed chase ended when the suspect ditched his car in downtown St. Louis.

The chase started in Illinois when officers tried to stop a speeder. KMOV reports police had to stop the pursuit because it was too dangerous. Officers in another area spotted the speeder though and the chase started again. Police followed the man to a parking garage at 13th Street and St. Charles. That is when the suspect bailed from the car. Police are now searching the area for the man.

The suspect is described as a white man, five-and-a-half feet tall and weighing about 155 pounds. He was seen wearing a dark hooded sweater and light grey or blue pants.

   NEW YORK (AP) — The mother of a Connecticut woman who was shot to death by police after trying to breach a barrier at the White House said her daughter was suffering from post-partum depression.

   Authorities said the woman set off a high-speed car chase that put the Capitol on lockdown Thursday and caused a fresh panic the city where a gunman killed 12 people two weeks ago.

   Two law enforcement officials identified the driver as 34-year-old Miriam Carey, of Stamford, Conn. She was traveling with a 1-year-old girl who avoided serious injury and was taken into protective custody. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation.

   Carey's mother, Idella Carey, told ABC News Thursday night that her daughter began suffering from post-partum depression after giving birth to her daughter, Erica, last August.

   "She had post-partum depression after having the baby" she said. She added, "A few months later, she got sick. She was depressed. ... She was hospitalized."

   Idella Carey said her daughter had "no history of violence" and she didn't know why she was in Washington, D.C., on Thursday. She said she thought Carey was taking Erica to a doctor's appointment in Connecticut.

   ABC News reported that Miriam Carey was a dental hygienist. Her boss, Dr. Steven Oken, described Carey as a person who was "always happy."

   I would never in a million years believe that she would do something like this," he said. "It's the furthest thing from anything I would think she would do, especially with her child in the car. I am floored that it would be her."
