SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Officials say two men suspected of involvement in a vehicle break-in on national park land outside San Francisco remain at large after leading authorities on a chase over the Golden Gate Bridge.

Park service spokeswoman Alexandra Picavet says a ranger spotted one of the men breaking into a vehicle in the Marin Headlands around 8 p.m. Monday. When the ranger tried to arrest him, the man jumped into a waiting Mercedes Benz, and he and the driver took off.

Picavet says they hit two ranger vehicles before getting on the bridge. They rear-ended another vehicle near the toll plaza before abandoning the Mercedes and escaping into the Presidio.

Rangers searched the woods with help from a California Highway Patrol helicopter, but were unable to find the men.
