Utah Police remain on the lookout for a California man -- and a male companion -- following a high-speed chase Sunday, that ended in a crash near the Salt Lake airport.

The Utah Highway Patrol claims Geoffrey Guess, 26 -- and an unknown male passenger -- got away on foot, after their silver pickup, with California plates, crashed through a fence, into a canal bed on airport property.

Troopers believe the two may have been picked up by friends, in a second vehicle.  

Guess has a California criminal record that includes charges of drug possession, auto theft, evading police, burglary and making threats.
