dolton, sd

Law enforcement officials in South Dakota have suspended their search for an escaped rape suspect and don't plan to resume until he's spotted again.

Oscar Herrera-Menjivar was being transported to Nebraska Saturday to face rape charges when he escaped on Interstate 90 near Spencer.

Wednesday authorities had narrowed the search to Dolton, South Dakota, after someone reported having a conversation with him that morning.

The search involved more than 60 officers, two planes and several search dogs and focused on cornfields in the Marion and Dolton area.

Officials had ordered people to lock up their homes and vehicles.
