Two men are on the run after running from a stolen semi-truck during a traffic stop in Collier County on Sunday morning.

Deputies pulled the truck over around 3 in the morning at N. 15th Street and W. Main Street. When deputies ran the license plates, the truck came back as stolen from the Hialeah area in Miami-Dade County.

Two men got out and ran from deputies after getting pulled over, prompting law enforcement to set up a perimeter in the area. Residents in Immokalee may have been woken up by a helicopter searching overhead. A K9 squad also aided in the search.

Despite hours of looking, however, the suspects were never found.

Law enforcement did not say what the truck was carrying in its trailer.

An investigation is ongoing.
