He was seen Wednesday evening in the Bainbridge Wal-Mart and knew that he had been recognized and darted out of a rear emergency door, according to BPS.

He was wearing a black hooded jacket, blue jeans, and was carrying a red backpack.

Tucker has also been named the suspect in a burglary at Sammy’s Bait & Tackle Thursday night around 9 p.m., said BPS Investigator Mark Esquivel.

Esquivel said that small food items were stolen and that he showed security footage to Tucker’s family members, who confirmed they thought it was him.

BPS is working to return the alleged runaway safely to his family. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Tucker is asked to contact 911 or contact BPS immediately at 229-248-2038.
