BRUCE, Miss. (WTVA) - A man is wanted in Calhoun County after leading police on a high-speed chase. 

Koty Harris is accused of leading the chase on Saturday, June 16, after failing to yield. 

Bruce Police Chief Tony Sockwell says an officer was trying to stop Harris' vehicle on the north end of Bruce on Highway 9. 

Police say Harris escaped from the vehicle. The vehicle continued to roll, ultimately hitting a tree. Harris then vanished into the woods. 

Sockwell believes someone took Harris to Pontotoc County. 

Harris is wanted for failure to yield, resisting arrest and possession of a firearm by a felon. 

He is not considered armed and dangerous.
