PUSHMATAHA COUNTY, Okla. (KXII) - The Pushmataha County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man who led deputies on a chase through three counties.

They say Johnny Hamilton, 27, is wanted for eluding Antlers police in a stolen car on Thursday and eluding Pushmataha County deputies on Friday.

Sheriff BJ Hedgecock says the pursuit ended in a deputy’s wreck, when there was dust in the road and they couldn’t see the curve.

Hedgecock says Hamilton kidnapped the passenger, a 20-year-old woman, left her and the car in Atoka and ran away.

Hamilton is wanted for felony eluding, reckless driving, kidnapping, and two counts of stealing a car.
