WESTON, Fla. -

The Broward County Sheriff's Office was looking for a murder suspect who was also involved in a police-involved shooting in Sweetwater in January.

Felipe Torrealba was last seen Thursday at a home in Lehigh Acres. Investigators believe he left with his girlfriend, Dayana Garcia, 22, and two children -- a 5-year-old boy and a 4-month-old girl.

Torrealba, 26, is wanted in connection with the murder of Kris Smalls in Weston. Smalls was reported missing March 18, and his body was found in his SUV about a week later.

Torrealba is also wanted for leading police on a chase in Sweetwater back in January.

Investigators believe Torrealba is driving a rented, grey Mercedes C300 with a Texas tag of CD7 P374.

Torrealba is described as having gold teeth and tattoos covering both arms. The name "Jillian" is tattooed on the left side of his neck and the name "Alex" is on his chest. He should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information about Torrealba’s whereabouts should dial 911, call BSO Homicide Det. Valerian Perez at 954-321-4210 or call Crime Stoppers of Broward County at 866-493-8477 or report information online at
