SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- Springfield Police are asking for the public's help in locating a wanted fugitive.

Police say Misty Necole Bayer was pulled over by an officer when she avoided arrest and drove off.

Officers say Bayer drove to a nearby apartment complex where she changed her appearance by cutting her hair and changing her clothes.

That's why police say she could look much different than the photo provided.

Bayer is facing a number of charges, including assault on a public safety officer and reckless driving.

Police do not believe she is a threat to the public.
