BREVARD COUNTY, Florida (WESH) -- A police chase that began with an abduction ended with a driver taking his life along Florida's Interstate 95 early Tuesday.

Authorities said the incident began Monday night in Lakeland when 26-year-old Elizabeth Hamilton was reported missing from her job at the Lakeland Square Mall. It was believed the woman was taken by her 28-year-old ex-fianc? Brett Lee Curtis.

A police officer attempted to pull the driver over, but Curtis would not stop or pull over. Curtis called 911 as he was fleeing from authorities.

"I'm a gentleman from Lakeland, and I have kidnapped my fianc?. If he continues to follow me, I will kill her," said Curtis in a 911 call.
