CITY OF SHASTA LAKE, Calif. - Deputies are searching for a man that lead authorities in a high-speed chase at the City of Shasta Lake Sunday, said the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO).

According to SCSO, at around 1:30 p.m. a deputy tried to perform a traffic stop on a white 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse, because of a vehicle violation. But the vehicle fled and drove at a high rate of speed westbound on Shasta Dam Boulevard from Median Avenue.

Deputies then chased the car, driven by Clifford Lee Bowers, 42, who continued to drive recklessly all the way to the Shasta Dam Visitors Center.

Once deputies arrived at the center, they laid out a tack strip that flattened the suspect’s vehicle, where the chase ended.

Bowers then left the Mitsubishi and fled on foot to the Centimudi Boat Ramp, but deputies could not locate the suspect.

Agencies including SCSO and a California Highway Patrol helicopter were continuously searching for Bowers but not to avail.

If anybody has seen Bowers they are asked to SCSO at (530)-245-6096.
