Deputies are looking for 22 year-old Jordan Blake Wallace from Friendsville.
Shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday, a deputy attempted a traffic stop on a 1990 Chevrolet pick-up truck on U.S. Highway 321 at Old Glory Road due to non-working lights on the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle refused to stop and accelerated at a high rate of speed. The deputy continued to follow the vehicle to the Parks Ferry boat launch where Wallace jumped out of the truck and ran toward into the water.
Several deputies went into the water in an attempt to get him out.
Investigators are continuing to follow leads after receiving information that Wallace may be alive and evading law enforcement.
If anyone has any information regarding his whereabouts, please contact authorities.
