WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The Sedgwick County Sheriff says he’s working to fire a deputy who went missing while under investigation.

“We are sworn to uphold the badge, not break the law. At this point, he has missed three shifts in a row. He’s been suspended without pay, and then we’ll start the process of termination at this point,” said Sheriff Jeff Easter.

Deputy Derick Chandler is wanted in a felony case out of Sumner County.

He’s now believed to be in Turkey with plans to join the French Foreign Legion.
