As of Dec 18, Hannah was back home, per her dad’s Facebook page.
Original Story: A South Carolina teen is missing and is believed to be with a man who the police are searching for in the case of a woman found stabbed to death in an abandoned home in October.
The family believes that Hannah Thompson is with John T. Blauvelt whom she had been dating. John T. Blauvelt and Charles Sidney Scott Jr. were both charged with murder in the death of Catherine Ann Blauvelt, John’s wife, according to WALB News.
Scott is now in the jail on unrelated charges.
Blauvelt is still at large and was last known to be at Las Cruces, New Mexico border checkpoint on Nov. 15. They may be riding in a red GMC Yukon with license plate JKY-829.
“Hannah Thompson, age 17, was reported missing out of Fountain Inn, SC, and is believed to be with her boyfriend and accused killer, John T. Blauvelt. Blauvelt is charged with the recent murder of his estranged wife, Catherine (Cati) Blauvelt, on Oct. 24, 2016. Police are still searching for John, whose last known location was at the Las Cruces, NM border checkpoint on Nov. 15th. They may be traveling in a 2000 GMC Yukon with SC license plate JKY-829. Hannah is 5’4” with long brown hair, brown eyes and braces. She was last seen Oct. 30, 2016,” according to Missing Pieces Network.
On Help Find Hannah Thompson website is information that the Yukon could have been painted gray.
“They were in Needles, CA on the 16th, at a border station. I’m sure they are long gone by now. Hannah had mentioned in the last few months, wanting to move to Oregon. I feel like they may have headed in that direction. Her mentioning Oregon came out of left field. I think now, knowing that she was seeing John at the time she mentioned Oregon, that maybe that’s something they had talked about. As for the car, I’ve only been told that it appeared to have been painted gray from the check-point photo law enforcement has. I was told the image was of the back of the car only.”
