GREELEY, Colo. (AP) -- Authorities are looking for a 15-year-old diabetic girl from Wisconsin and three teenage males who were believed to be in a stolen vehicle that led officers on a chase in northeastern Colorado.

The Weld County Sheriff's Department said Friday that Breanne Gomez of Eau Claire is an insulin-dependent diabetic who could suffer seizures without medication.

Authorities say her medication was found in a stolen vehicle that had been abandoned in Weld County after a pursuit through two nearby counties on Thursday night.

The vehicle was eventually recovered about 50 miles northeast of Denver and a light blue Chrysler minivan was reported stolen.

Deputies say the four might be headed to Riverside, Calif., in the
minivan.

Police say Gomez was reported as a runaway on Monday.
