Reward in missing police captain case hits $40,000
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WTVR) – The reward for information about the disappearance of 45-year-old police captain Kevin Quick has grown.
“Waynesboro area residents and businesses have now pledged $40,000 in reward money for information that leads to Kevin’s whereabouts,” Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller wrote in Thursday afternoon an email. “Search efforts are now underway in Louisa County. Today’s concentration on Louisa County is based on the additional tips that have come in the past 24 hours and the recovery of Quick’s abandoned silver 1999 Toyota 4Runner at a residence near Mineral.”
Earlier Thursday, a judge denied bond to all three Albemarle County siblings arrested in connection with the Quick’s disappearance.
Shantai Shelton, 24, Mersadies Shelton, 20, and Daniel Mathis, 18, were denied bond.
Mersadies Shelton and Mathis are charged with felony grand larceny in connection with Quick’s vehicle.
Shantai Shelton was taken into custody on outstanding arrest warrant in Louisa County.
All three are being held at the Central Virginia Regional Jail in Orange County.
Quick was last seen around 10:15 p.m. Friday, according to Virginia State Police. He has not yet been found.
Police became concerned for his safety over the weekend after pictures surfaced of two unidentified individuals and Quick’s vehicle.
At this stage of the investigation, state police have not confirmed the identity of the people in the footage.
This is a developing story.
