Castorina and Dawson are considered armed and risky. Castorina does have family in Norfolk, Va.

Police were also looking for Castorina and Dawson, who had been reported missing. According to the Burlington, N.C. Police Department's press release, "Mr. Simpson has no history of dementia or other cognitive impairments".
