Police are searching for the driver of a white Subaru station wagon who led them on a high-speed chase through Invercargill yesterday.

The pursuit began after the driver failed to stop for police about 12.45pm.

Acting Sergeant Blair Dalton, of Invercargill, said the driver sped away from police initially in Queens Drive before heading through the Windsor area into St Andrew St and Racecourse Rd.

The pursuit was eventually called off because of the reckless nature of the driving, he said.

"There were high speeds involved and the safety concerns for members of the public, the occupants of the speeding car and police officers was taken into consideration."

The station wagon was an early 1990s model and there were four people inside the car, Mr Dalton said.

Anyone with information should contact Invercargill police on (03) 2110400.
