HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - We now have a face to go with the description of a man wanted in Harrison County for running from authorities during a traffic stop.

The suspect, who we've been calling 'Skinny Santa,' has been identified as Victor Casky, 57. He's wanted out of Rowan County, Florida for trafficking a controlled substance.

Investigators said Casky was stopped around 9:33 Wednesday morning on Landon Lake Blvd. off of Canal Road in Gulfport. He fled into a wooded area around Canal Road, and an unsuccessful search ensued.

Sheriff Melvin Brisolara said Casky may still be in the Gulf Coast area. He's 5'9" tall, weighs 150lbs, and has blue eyes and blonde hair.

The sheriff is asking anyone with information on Casky's whereabouts to call the Harrison County Sheriff's Office at (228) 897-1507 or Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898.
