A nationwide manhunt is underway for a grandmother wanted for murder.

Officials across the country are searching for 56-year-old Lois Riess, who they say killed her husband in Minnesota last month.

Riess is believed to have killed a Bradenton woman shortly after, in order to steal her identity.

59-year-old Pamela Hutchinson was found dead inside a motel room in Fort Myers.

Her family is devastated and is concerned Riess will hurt someone else if not caught soon.

"We're just trying to get through each day," said Robin Barry, Hutchinson's stepdaughter.

Newly released surveillance video shows Riess walking into a Hilton hotel in Ocala.

Although it's unclear when the video was taken, officials believe she is no longer in Florida.

Investigators say Riess was last seen in Corpus Christie, Texas, but at this point could be anywhere.

Officials consider her armed and dangerous.

"Hopefully they will find this lady," said Barry.

The U.S. Marshals Service is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest of a fugitive suspected of killing her husband in Minnesota and a woman in Florida.  Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is also offering a reward of up to $1,000 in the case.
