Officers engaged in a pursuit around 4:30 p.m., with Steven Bittiker, II. of Carrollton, who is wanted on outstanding felony warrants. The chase went off road before the suspect crashed his vehicle and fled into the thick timber. Carroll County deputies, the Missouri Highway Patrol, Chillicothe K-9 Unit and Carrollton Fire were called in to assist.
