Mobile police are searching for a man who escaped after a high-speed chase across the city.

The chase started around 1:45 a.m. Wednesday on Moffett Rd. in West Mobile.

The driver of a 2013 Chevy Cruze continued onto Spring Hill Ave., then turned onto Florida St. and eventually Airport Blvd, passing Mobile Police Headquarters.

The driver then headed south on Dauphin Island Parkway reaching 80 miles per hour, eventually bailing out of the car at a house on Bishop Wilmer Dr. off Hurtel St.

Officers searched the house and the car but didn't find the suspect.

The family in the home told police they last saw the man in their carport.

NBC 15 is working to get a clear description of the suspect and find out what started the chase.
