LIZANA, MS (WLOX) - Authorities say a suspect in a fatal 2014 crash that killed his wife remains on the run. 

After receiving a tip, several agencies responded to a wooded area in Lizana Wednesday evening to search for Joshua Ladner, a suspect in a fatal 2014 hit and run.

According to Chief Deputy Ron Pullen with the Harrison County Sheriff's Office, the search continues for Ladner, who has a warrant out for failure to appear in court connected to his arrest for the crash.

Pullen says deputies got a tip Tuesday that Ladner was believed to be located in the area off Vidalia Rd. in Harrison County. On Wednesday, authorities received another tip that Ladner was in a gated area in Lizana, but were unable to locate him.

Ladner's girlfriend has been arrested for hindering prosecution.
