FORT SMITH, Ark. (KFSM) -- Authorities are searching for two suspects who they say stole a Fort Chaffee military Humvee at gunpoint Monday morning on Highway 96.

A Fort Chaffee maintenance personnel member took a soft-top Humvee on a drive down Highway 96 Monday morning, when they noticed two people pulled over on the side of the road having what looked like car trouble.

When the maintenance worker stopped to help the pair, the worker was held at gunpoint by the suspects, and the Humvee was stolen, according to Col. Dwight Ikenberry.

The Humvee was found crashed along Highway 96 near Fort Smith Boulevard, according to Ikenberry.

Surrounding law enforcement agencies are helping search for the suspects who are in a blue 4x4 Dodge truck with an Oklahoma tag.
