A woman in Redding, California lead police on a chase Sunday afternoon while driving a van painted exactly like the “Mystery Machine” from Scooby Doo, as you can see pictured above.

The woman got away and her whereabouts remain, well …a mystery.

The chase started when officers tried to stop 51-year-old Sharon Kay Turman for a parole violation after a probation officer with Shasta County contacted Redding Police Department, the incident report states.

Speeds reached over 100 miles per hour once she reached Interstate 5. Police had eyes on the Mystery Machine from the ground while the California Highway Patrol followed in the air.

But officers say, after running a stop sign and nearly hitting four vehicles, Turman ditched the van and fled on foot. She was spotted ditching the van on helicopter surveillance in northwestern Tehama County.

Police did seize her abandoned vehicle – a 1994 Chrysler “Mystery Machine” minivan, which has been impounded.

Turman is wanted by the Redding police and Shasta County probation. Police are requesting that anyone with information regarding her whereabouts to call the Redding Police Department at (530) 225-4200 or Secret Witness of Shasta County at (530) 243-2319.

So, Sharon Kay Turman, where are you?
