A search is underway in South Carolina for the man allegedly behind a weeks-long, multi-state crime spree that’s left four dead and another seriously injured, PEOPLE confirms.

Tyler Terry, 26, is wanted for killings in South Carolina and Missouri, according to authorities in both states.

Terry was last seen in Lancaster, S.C., on Thursday, according to the Chester County Sheriff’s Office.

Adrienne Simpson, 34, whom authorities allege is Terry’s girlfriend, has been in police custody since Monday night, when officers in Chester, S.C., tried stopping the couple’s vehicle, sparking a high-speed chase through several towns.

Before the couple’s car crashed in Richburg, S.C., police allege several bullets were fired from it, striking at least two pursuing patrol cars.

When the vehicle wrecked, Terry fled on foot, disappearing into a nearby woods. Simpson was handcuffed, and Terry remains at large. Police say he is armed and extremely dangerous.

Terry’s crime spree began May 2, when he allegedly killed 35-year-old Thomas Hardin in York, S.C.

Police believe Terry was also behind two other shootings in that area, which were reported on the same day.

According to investigators, Simpson drove the car during the commission of those crimes.

It’s believed the couple then traveled to the St. Louis, Mo., region, where police allege they stole a truck’s license plate and screwed it onto their vehicle on the evening of May 15.
