Orangeburg, SC -
Authorities in Orangeburg County are looking for a 19-year-old Orangeburg woman who was last seen Tuesday night.
Meanwhile, the CBS TV station in Fort Myers reported that Orangeburg authorities say they have surveillance video that shows Luck with Steven Tompkins, who is wanted for questioning in the Lehigh Acres killings of his mother and brother.
Investigators were contacted on Tuesday December 10, when Linda Luck reported her 19-year-old daughter, Joycelin, had stolen $1,000 cash from their home.
On Wednesday December 11, Ms. Luck spoke with investigators to say that she still had not heard from her daughter, who used to live near Fort Myers.
Ms. Luck helped police determine that her daughter had been at Wal-Mart on North Road in Orangeburg on Tuesday evening. Surveillance images show Joycelin with a man, other evidence indicates she was with a white male.
A friend told WBBH-TV that Tompkins is Luck's boyfriend. Another friend told the TV station the two would often talk via Skype, but had never met in person - until he showed up December 10th.
The sheriff's office said Tompkins may be armed with a handgun and traveling in a 2004, green, four-door Ford F-150 Lariat pick-up truck, with a Florida license tag of BFK T59.
WINK-TV reported that deputies say Tompkins is only a 'person of interest' who they would like to question about the double murder.
Joycelin is listed on the website for National Center For Missing and Exploited Children.
Police are continuing to investigate the disappearance of Joycelin Luck.
Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to contact Investigations at 803-534-3550 or CrimeStoppers at 888-CRIME.SC.
