A family spokesperson says that after two weeks without contact with his family or friends surveillance video from Rocky Mount's WalMart store shows Zhenya with two men. 

Rocky Mount Police Chief David Cundiff says, "A friend spotted Zhenya Prokopchak at Wal-Mart in Rocky Mount last night and confronted him.  Police pulled the surveillance and the parents confirmed it was Zhenya on the tape."

Zhenya's parents do not recognize the two men their son is seen with on the tape and are concerned for his safety.  One of the men in the video is described as being in his twenties and the other in his fifties.

WSLS is also told that the two men left the store with Zhenya immediately after his former classmate approached them.

Anyone with information that can help with this investigation is asked to call (540) 562-3265 dispatcher's can either send an officer immediately to check on the tip or provide callers with the lead investigator on the case.
