A man known to be violent is on the loose near Farm to Market Road 2516, commonly known as Buchanan Loop Road.

Jordan Lee of New Boston, Texas, is wanted on multiple felony warrants in Arkansas. After a vehicle pursuit Saturday that took place between 6:30 and 7 p.m. and involved Texas Parks and Wildlife Game Warden Shawn Hervey and Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Chad Turner, Lee crashed the truck he was driving, then fled on foot into a heavily wooded area east of U.S. Highway 59 and near Horseshoe Loop Road, which extends south from FM 2516.

Hervey said Lee is likely attempting to make his way to George Thomas Road, where authorities believe he has contacts who may help him.

Lee is in his 30s, 6-foot-1 and weighs about 220 pounds, with brown hair and a brown goatee. He has numerous tattoos on his body, Hervey said.

All residents in the area are urged to lock their homes and secure vehicles.

Hervey said Lee is known to be violent. He warned anyone who may come into contact with Lee not to attempt to subdue him, but to immediately call 911 or contact law enforcement directly.

Call Bowie County Sheriff’s Office at 903-798-3149.
