Two women remain on the lam as the search for them intensifies. Tabitha Eddy and Bridgett Henn are described as armed and very dangerous. Now more people are stepping forward to encourage the pair to give themselves up.

The two have been on the run for 10 days and show no signs of giving themselves up. But each day they're free, authorities say we are all at risk.

First it was Eddy's brother, but now others are stepping forward asking the women to come to their senses and surrender. The latest plea carries some emotional weight of a sacrifice made so others could live.

Back in December 2010, Mickle Graham was gunned down in the home he shared with his fiancé, Tabitha Eddy. That, according to many, was the event that sent Tabby into a downward spiral they say she is still in.

Saturday, Graham's mother joined the chorus of voices asking Eddy and Henn to give themselves up. "She's strong enough to come back, she is a very strong individual and she has a good heart." Frankie Nicholson says her son and Tabitha had a special bond. They knew each other only a short while, but were destined for each other.

Shortly after Graham was murdered, Eddy told Channel 6 News about the night the love affair ended. "He kissed me on my cheek and then he went into the kitchen and I made it to the kids' room and then I heard pop, pop, pop. There must have been 20 shots."

Frankie says her son gave his life so Tabitha and her children could live. She also says it would break his heart to see the woman he loved in the situation she is currently in. "This isn't the kind of life that Mickle would have wanted for her. I don't want him dying in vain. He wouldn't want her doing what she is doing right now."

Right now, Eddy and Henn are hiding out. Authorities say they attacked a woman and tried to kidnap her and have been on the run ever since. For a growing number of friends and family, it’s time for the running to stop.

Channel 6 News also talked with Henn's mother. She intended to make a similar plea on Friday, but wasn't sure a public plea to her daughter would help or hurt the situation. Sharon Henn is sincere when she says she doesn't want to see anyone else hurt.
