Isabel Hicks was last seen in her home in Louisa County, Virginia. She vanished sometime after 1 a.m. on Monday, October 21. Officials believe she is in the company of 33-year-old Bruce Lynch Jr., of Bumpass, Virginia.
“Lynch is believed to be armed with a 9MM and had recent suicidal ideations,” the alert states. “Suspect is believed to be armed and dangerous.”
Isabel is a 14-year-old white female who stands 4 feet 11 inches tall and weighs 120 lbs. She has blues eyes and straight, blond hair. Lynch is 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs 195 lbs. He has brown hair, brown eyes and several tattoos: crosses on both of his upper arms and “Bruce” at the top of his back.
Lynch is reportedly Isabel’s mother’s ex-boyfriend, who had been living in their home until a month ago when he was kicked out, according to WTVR-6 of Richmond.
Police have said the teen is in “extreme danger,” the outlet reports.
Investigators believe the pair could be traveling in a blue or silver 2003 Toyota Matrix with Virginia registration VEM9071, or Lynch may have switched the tags to UXW3614 or 249-9UT, according to the alert.
“Information received appears they may be traveling out of state and staying in areas where they could camp,” the alert states.
