    Northern California police have a real mystery on their hands.

    A driver of a mini-van painted to resemble the "Mystery Machine'' from the Scooby Doo cartoon series led Redding police on a high-speed chase reaching speeds in excess of 100 mph Sunday afternoon before giving her pursuers the slip.

    Redding Police are now searching for 51-year-old Sharon Kay Turman, who was wanted for alleged probation violations. 

    KRCR reports Monday that Turman's 1994 Chrysler Town and Country minivan was painted to resemble the van of cartoon fame.

    Police say Turman blew through several red lights, showing disregard for the safety of other motorists, prompting an end to the pursuit.

    A California Highway Patrol helicopter pilot watched her abandon the vehicle.
