LEITCHFIELD, Ky. – Authorities are looking for a teenage couple from central Kentucky who are suspected in a multi-state crime spree.
Grayson County Sheriff Norman Chaffins says 18-year-old Dalton Hayes disappeared Jan. 3 with a 13-year-old girl. Since then, police say they believe the couple has traveled to Manning, South Carolina, and Henry County, Georgia. Along the way, police say they're suspected of stealing multiple vehicles and using stolen checks.
Chaffins says it's imperative that authorities locate the two "as their behavior is becoming increasing brazen and dangerous."
They were spotted Monday at a Wal-Mart in South Carolina. On Thursday, authorities in Georgia found the vehicle they had been using abandoned, and another vehicle with guns was reported stolen from a nearby location.
Chaffins says anyone who spots the couple should call 911.
