Several law enforcement agencies are searching for a man that ran from them early Thursday morning.

Wichita County Sheriff David Duke confirmed the wanted suspect is James Dylan Bryant, 39.

According to Wichita County Sheriff's Deputy Melvin Joyner, the sheriff's office is assisting the Electra Police Department searching for Bryant who was in possession of a stolen vehicle out of Burkburnett. 

The stolen vehicle was parked at the Crooked Creek Golf Course on SH 240, according to Deputy Joyner. Electra Police Chief Mike Dozier said the department got a call about an abandoned vehicle and a man walking in the roadway on TX-25.

Chief Dozier said the man, later identified as Bryant, said he left the vehicle after he got a flat tire. Officers did not detain Bryant at this time. It was later discovered, the vehicle was stolen so a search for Bryant began.

According to Chief Dozier, Bryant was found in a field around 9 a.m. in the area of Brosch Road between Old Lake Road and TX-25 in Haynesville just north of Electra.

Officials said Bryant ran into a heavily wooded area in between Old Lake Road and SH 240. Several law enforcement officers and a K9 were searching homes and properties in that area.

ATV's, horses, and drones are being used to help search for Bryant due to the terrain in the area. As of 4 p.m., Bryant was still on the loose.
