WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office is seeking help in locating Deputy Derick A. Chandler.
Chandler, 29, went missing Monday after being identified as a suspect in a case jointly investigated by the Wellington Police Department and the Summer County Sheriff’s Office.
Wellington police chief Tracy Heath says he has been interviewing potential witnesses in a felony investigation over the weekend. He could have some kind of a felony case to present to Sumner County attorney Kerwin Spencer this week.
The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office says Chandler may be a danger to himself or others. Police in Wellington say Chandler took guns and some personal belongings from his home over the weekend.
Chandler was seen early Monday in Wichita driving a 2015 Dodge Charger, white in color with a black stripe. There is a 60-day temporary tag on the vehicle.
Court records show Chandler faced charges of abuse of a child in 2013, but those charges were dropped.
If anyone sees him, you should call 911 and report the location to their local law enforcement agency. Do not try to take action yourself.
