DELTONA -- Volusia County Sheriff's deputies are continuing to search for 28-year-old Thomas Fey, whom they have named as a suspect in the 5 p.m. Sunday stabbings of his parents in the Deltona home they all shared at 3215 Hyder Ave.

The father, Thomas Fey, 60, and the mother, Theresa Fey, 54, were listed early this morning in stable condition at Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach, where each was admitted for multiple stab wounds. Sheriff's officials did not go into greater detail on the stab wounds except to say the father underwent emergency surgery.

"Theresa Fey fled the home after the attack took place and ran to a nearby wooded area, where she was located by responding deputies," Sheriff's spokesman Brandon Haught told NSBNews.net. "Thomas Fey was inside the residence. The suspect, 28-year-old Thomas Fey, is the couple's son and lives with the victims at the residence where the stabbings occurred. Investigators are still trying to determine what sparked the violence."

Deputies were notified at approximately 5 p.m. that two adults, one man and one woman, had been stabbed multiple times by a person known to them. Both victims were transported by Sheriff's Office helicopter to Halifax.

The son is believed to be driving a champagne-colored 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee, license number 285HER. Anyone who knows Fey's whereabouts is asked to call 9-1-1 immediately.
