INITIAL reports suggest a P-plater has led Gold Coast Police on a high speed pursuit over the NSW border and Tweed Police have stepped in to help.

The car was abandoned in Maclean St, Coolangatta after crossing the border at Tugun and taking the Kennedy Dr exit into Tweed Heads West.

A police canine unit is currently assisting police in tracking down persons from the car.

It is believed one person of interest has a 'mullet' style haircut.

Queensland Police and NSW Police said they are unable to provide any more information at this time.
