NELSON COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) — A massive search is underway for a missing Waynesboro police captain who was last seen Friday night.

Photos obtained by Virginia State Police has law enforcement “gravely concerned” about the safety of 45-year-old Kevin Wayne Quick from Nelson County.

Quick, a captain with the Waynesboro Police Department’s Police Reserve Unit, was reported missing Saturday by his family.

Quick was last seen Friday at 10:15 p.m., when he left his mother’s residence in Afton. He was headed to a friend’s home at Turtle Creek Apartments in Albemarle County, about 20 miles away, but he never arrived.

During the course of the investigation, surveillance photos show two men investigators think have information about Quick’s disappearance.

Quick’s silver 1999 Toyota Forerunner, with Virginia license plates 614-068 with the seal of the Commonwealth in the middle, are also spotted in the photos that show the SUV in Fork Union on Friday and Manassas on Saturday.

Extensive ground and air searches took place Saturday night and Sunday morning near the areas of the residences in Afton and Albemarle County.

Quick described as a white male, six feet one inches tall and weighing about 200 pounds. He has brown hair, hazel eyes and medium build. He wears contacts or glasses and has a scar above his left eye.

The Virginia State Police are leading the investigation into Quick’s disappearance.

      Did you read the article? They said they conducted searches saturday and sunday as soon as the family reported that he did not return home. How would they know to search before the family knew he was missing?

    There is a 24 hour waiting period for the Missing Persons report, that would initiate the search by Saturday morning. The article below clearly reads that the search was promptly initiated. Also, just because the media is covering this today, doesn’t mean that the search was not underway previously. Thank you for your understanding and your willingness to support this search, instead of pointing fingers or asking demeaning questions. All the best to the Captain and the family and praying for the safe return. Stay strong

    This is the second law enforcement person gone missing, first the deputy found in Greenville and now this law enforcement person gone missing, in both cases their vehicles were gone too.

    Mighty spooky. Nelson County too — where that girl went missing last year. Was this guy wrapped up with some bad characters? DId he know something that somebody didn’t want leaked out? It’s surely something along those lines.

    The guys in the picture look just alike. Looking for over weight brothers maybe and someone knows who they are.

    Thats a coincidence two officers go missing within days of each other..the first deputy was found dead in creek now this one…that is scary

      I don’t get the 2 guy thing either. I’ve read several times in different articles where they have 2 men of interest but I have only seen these pictures which are clearly the same person.

    The first missing deputy’s vehicle slid on ice and was submerged in a body of water, killing him. This one will probably be a carjacking, robbery, murder. Motive is almost always money. They guy in the picture only resembles victim because he’s an older, pudgy, pale, white male.

      Ok but they both happened in within hours not days and not too far from each other so how about this, the men force the first deputy to drive, this deputy is older,wiser and remember his friends and family said he was an excellent driver and the skid marks head right to the creek, so he goes for it slams the gas pedel drives right into the creek, the bad guys drown him, they escape that was Friday morning so they figure it didn’t work the first time so they try it again that night. I know I watch too many detective shows. Thank you for your time.
