    Priscilla Ferreira, 28, is wanted on a felony warrant for evading arrest. It started when a DPS trooper tried to pull her over on Wells Branch Parkway and she took off.

    "She had gone against traffic, and he observed her making sudden changes in traffic and turning left and right," said Deputy U.S. Marshal Brandon Filla.

    Ferreira got away, but troopers say she was driving a 2009 grey Audi with Texas license plate DYX 6972.

    "We do believe that that vehicle may have received some damage during the pursuit while she was trying to evade. That vehicle could currently be in some type of mechanic's garage," said Filla.

    She may currently be driving a black Jeep Grand Cherokee, and U.S. Marshals don't think Ferreira has gone far.

    "She did have an address on Lamar Blvd in Austin. We believe now that she may be residing somewhere off Killingsworth Ln. in Pflugerville," said Filla.

    Priscilla Ferreira is 5'8' and weighs 120 pounds. She has a tattoo on her upper left arm. Authorities believe she may have run for a reason, and they want to find out why.

    "Why is this person the Marshals' Most Wanted for this week? You look at why did she run, those are the questions that she's going to have to answer," said Filla.

    If you have any information about Priscilla Ferreira call the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force at 512-800-4213.
