    Wanted: one Deadliest Catch star.

    A Seattle judge has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of Jake Harris, the youngest son of the late reality-TV skipper Phil Harris, after no-showing this morning for a preliminary hearing in his reckless driving case.

    "He failed to appear, and the court issued a bench warrant with a $500 bail," prosecutor's spokesman Dan Donohoe tells E! News.

    The 24-year-old Harris, who also stars on the Discovery series as one of the deckhands on the Cornelia Marie, is facing charges of reckless driving and driving with a suspended license resulting from Feb. 18 arrest. He was originally booked on suspicion of DUI and hit-and-run charges, but prosecutors felt there wasn't sufficient evidence to press those charges.

    No word on the younger Harris' whereabouts. His rep could not be reached for comment.

    A new court date will scheduled when he finally appears before the judge.
