Caldwell Sheriff deputies are searching for the rider of a motorcycle who led them on a high speed chase south of Lenoir this morning.  That chase ended up in a wooded area after the rider ditched the motorcycle along a trail near Pinnacle Court.  Deputies say they tried to pull over the operator who passed cars illegally and reached speeds in excess of one hundred miles per hour.  Now they are trying to determine if the motorcycle was possibly stolen after finding the vehicle identification numbers for the bike scratched off.
