Police chased the car of a suspect of a Kitsap County Washington murder in Portland Wednesday morning and then lost him, police said.

Officer spotted the car belonging to murder suspect David Kalac, 33, driving near Southeast 9th Ave. and Powell Blvd., said Sgt. Pete Simpson of the Portland Police Bureau.

Officers initiated a traffic stop of the suspect's vehicle, but the driver ignored them and sped on. Police engaged in a high-speed pursuit ensued across the Ross Island Bridge and southbound Barbur Blvd. The vehicle began swerving into oncoming traffic, terminating the pursuit.  The car was last seen headed southbound on Barbur Blvd., passing Taylors Ferry Road, according to police. 

The car, a gold 2001 Ford Focus 4-door with Washington plate 495-YLY, was later found by police in Portland, according to a report on KATU.

Based on the information available, officers believe the homicide suspect was driving the car. They also believe he is armed and dangerous. 

Kalac is the suspect in the murder of Amanda Lynn Coplin, 30, of Port Orchard Washington. Photos of Coplin's body were posted online shortly before her body was discovered.  Coplin's 13-year-old son apparently heard Kalac and Coplin arguing Monday night, while the boy was in his own bedroom. Kalac left the house and the boy's mother was found dead the next day, with her driver's license next to her, the word 'dead' written across it, according to media reports.

Kalac has an active warrant for the murder in the second, according to the Seattle Times. He is 6 foot 2 inches, 200 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. 

The Portland Police Bureau asks anyone who spots Kalac not to approach, but immediately call 9-1-1.
