Ex of escapee prisoner says she is heading to Mullumbimby

The recently-dumped boyfriend of one of two women currently on the run from prison says he believes the pair are en route to the NSW border.

Joseph Milanov told News Corp he and 24-year-old Tegan Simpson had ‘loved each other from day dot’, but she had dumped him on the phone last week.

He believes she and accomplice Abigail Graf, 21, are headed for Mullumbimby – a small town just north of Byron Bay – and not even a 90 minute drive from the Numinbah Correctional Centre.

‘I just want her to hand herself in, but obviously she’s not really for that,’ Mr Milanov said.

‘[An associate] told me they were headed for Mullumbimby — I think it’s in NSW. I don’t even know what’s there or why anyone would go there.’

Mr Milanov said the pair had been dating for some time, which included jail sentences for both of them. 

‘I went to jail and we were still together, but I found out she was playing up,’ he said.

The pair had reconciled when Mr Milanov was released, but he says she called him from prison last week to break up with him.

She told him: ‘I’m done. Bye,’ before hanging up on him.
