Is there anything in Egyptian records about Jewish slaves or their escape?

Story is,they fled captivity across the red Sea,then onto Palestine. But the Egyptians were meticulous record keepers; what do their accounts say? Also how could 250,000 or more Jews make it all the way across the Sinai Peninsula before horsemen and charioteers catch up with them? That's a long way.

And wouldn't the desert they wandered in for forty years have been the Negev - which is actually quite small? How could they have supplied themselves? Are there any archeological traces of such a huge mass-migration?
