LEHIGH ACRES, Fla - Steven Tompkins was reportedly spotted at a Walmart in Orangeburg South Carolina between 10:00 p.m. and midnight last night. He was allegedly seen with an ex-girlfriend, who used to live in the Southwest Florida.
No one has heard from joycelin luck since Tuesday.
That's the same day lee county deputies say her ex boyfriend, Steven Tompkins, left his home in Lehigh Acres.
Tompkins is wanted for questioning in the murders of his mother and brother.
"We are all kind of in shock that he did flee and want to get to the bottom of what actually happened," said Steven's cousin Brandy Sullivan.
Joycelin's mother called orangeburg deputies Tuesday to say her daughter stole one thousand dollars in cash from their home and took off.
"I think everybody is worried for her safety at this point. i don't think anyone thinks she is aware of exactly what's happened. they are working hard to locate both of them and get her home," said Sullivan.
Steven's cousin, Brandy Sullivan, told WINK News she doesn't think steven would hurt Luck, but doesn't know what he's capable of.
Steven's father was too upset to go on camera but told me - "my brain is telling me it isn't true."
And has a message for his 24 year old son -- "What happened? i love you. if you can shed some light on what happened, we need to know."
They believe the pair are headed to Upstate NY, where Luck has family.

LEHIGH ACRES, Fla.- The Lee County Sheriff's Office has confirmed the two people found dead at 1919 Jefferson Avenue on Tuesday are 55-year-old Shelley Tompkins and her 22-year-old son, Daniel Tompkins.
Authorities are searching for Shelley's other son, 24-year-old Steven David Tompkins, who is considered a person of interest. Steven was reportedly spotted at a Walmart in Orangeburg South Carolina between 10:00 p.m. and midnight last night. He was allegedly seen with an ex-girlfriend, 19-year-old Joycelin Luck, who used to live in the Southwest Florida.
Joycelin is listed on the website for National Center For Missing and Exploited Children. According to the organization, she was last seen on Tuesday, and may be enroute to Buffalo, New York. Joycelin also uses the alias Luna Agatashi.
