She was last seen wearing a Cheetah print shirt with a brown scarf and blue jeans.

"I just want her home. She has kids," Tanice Campbell, Thompson's cousin, said. "She has two."

Campbell says Thompson's mom broke the news to her.

"I just want her to get home safe," Campbell said.

Harmon is accused of murdering Culbreath on Wednesday. Investigators believe Thompson was taken in relation to that murder.

Campbell says she doesn't know anything about Harmon and can't even imagine what her cousin is going through right now.

"She is scared. I know she scared," Campbell said. "She don't know what to think."

As police continue to search for Thompson, Campbell has a message for the man who took her cousin.

"Just let her come home, let her come home to her kids," Campbell said.
