    Eyewitness News was told nothing was found.

    The owner of the strip club told Eyewitness News that the officers told him they got a tip that Loyd may have been at the club.

    The owner said he hasn’t seen or heard from Loyd since around July when he stopped working at the strip club.

    Sade Dixon, the ex-girlfriend of Loyd, used to a bartender at the club, the owner said. 

    Loyd is accused of killing her in December.

    Loyd shot and killed Orlando Master Sgt. Debra Clayton Monday in a Walmart parking lot when she went to question him, police said.
