Suspect pursued into Lehigh River identified
New details are emerging tonight about that man police say made a dramatic escape during a chase with authorities in Northampton County.
Authorities tell 69 News they're looking for 30-year-old Eric Messick.
Officials say he led police on a chase before pulling over and eventually jumping into the icy Lehigh River last week.
We've also learned tonight that Messick is wanted for theft.
Anybody with information is asked to call police and Lehigh Valley Bail at 610-972-2659. A reward is being offered.
