    I found this with pictures:

    Sheila Dodd and her 13-year old son William have vanished without a trace.

    They were last seen in their hometown of Round O, South Carolina in Colleton County Tuesday, but investigators weren't worried until Sheila's car turned up in Oglethorpe County, Georgia.

    Deputies say it's a bizarre situation, and they feel like they've already lost precious time in their hopes to find Sheila and William Dodd alive.

    In one of the articles it sounded like the person of interest escaped from somewhere. I really couldn't make heads or tales of the article because it seemed to jump all over the place.

    I take it that Shelia and her boy haven't been found yet though. It sounds like the guy that is now in a mental facility is responsible for their disappearance though. I hope we hear something soon about this mom and son. I hope they are alive somewhere.

    I don't think so or at least it hasn't been released. Most of the articles mention that they're trying to figure out just what the relationship was. Several mentioned that Simmons and his girlfriend were living with the Dodds.

    Man Faces Double Murder Charges

    ~snip~

    Ft. Oglethorpe Police Chief Larry Black says, "It appears that Simmons and a girlfriend had relocated to the South Carolina area and were living with Ms. Dodd and her son...apparently some kind of dispute..and he moved out of that residence and at some point returned to the residence and some time of altercation took place."

    Police say Simmons stole Shelia Dodd's SUV and traveled to Georgia. It was at Hutcheson Medical Center in Fort Olgethorpe that Simmons left the car and apparently met up with his mom last Thursday.

    ~snip~

    As police impounded Shelia Dodd's SUV, the search continued for Simmons. Not until Monday did police find out that Simmons checked himself into Parkridge Valley Hospital in Chattanooga.

    This is just so sad. Maybe he had taken something from the Dodds when he was living there and they confronted him when he came back to get his stuff.
    He must have just gone crazy to murder both of them. I can't begin to imagine the terror that mom and her boy must have felt. I hope he tells where he hid their bodies.

    Here this mom and boy were nice enough to let that couple stay with them and look how they were thanked. Darn scary world isn't it
