The search continued Friday for a man involved in a high speed chase that began around 5:30 p.m. Thursday. It extended from Lauderdale County into west Alabama.

Deputies chased a Cadillac for miles before its driver stopped around mile marker six and fled on foot.

"At around 5:30 p.m. agents with the East Mississippi Drug Task Force attempted to arrest a 21-year-old black male by the name of Ricky Thomas, about 5'9", 145 pounds. He's involved in a drug investigation," said Maj. Ward Calhoun of the Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department.

Anyone who has information on Thomas' whereabouts is asked to call Crimestoppers at (601) 917-8888.
