Search Continues for Missing Nelson County Man

Reporter: Brendan Ponton

WAYNESBORO, Va. (WHSV) -- Police now suspect foul play in the disappearance of Kevin Quick.

Quick served as a captain of Waynesboro's Police Reserve Unit and has been missing since Friday.

He was last seen leaving Afton, driving a 1999 Silver Toyota 4Runner and was expected to head to Albemarle County to visit a friend, but never arrived.

Quick served as a volunteer in the reserve unit, which helps at special events and other duties, for over two decades Sgt. Brian Edwards with the Waynesboro Police Department said he was a very respected officer.

"Salt of the earth kind of guy. Always had a smile on his face. Always willing to help out. Would give the shirt off your back. If anyone wanted anything from Kevin, he was always willing to give it there. Very dedicated, but also very dedicated to the city of Waynesboro," said Edwards.

A local car dealership owner is also offering reward money for any information that help leads to the case being solved.

Rodney Soulsby owns New Age Auto on East Main Street in Waynesboro.

He said he's met Quick several times and comes from a law enforcement background.

He's pledging $5,000.

"With the way the times are, and people with financial situations and so forth, I've learned that when a reward or something is offered, it seems to have more people pay more attention," said Soulsby.

He is also challenging other car dealership owners in the area to donate to help solve the case.

State police will be holding a press conference at 2 p.m. Monday to provide an update on the search for Quick.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Virginia State Police at #77 on a cell phone or at (434) 352-7128.

 

Police in Calif. seek Mother of Dead 4-Year-Old

NAPA, Calif. (AP) -- Police in Northern California say they are looking for the mother of a 4-year-old girl who was found dead in her bed by officers conducting a welfare check.

The Napa Police Department said they have not been able to find 23-year-old Sara Krueger and her boyfriend, 26-year-old Scott Warner, since the body of Krueger's daughter was discovered on Saturday afternoon.

Police say neighbors reported seeing the couple carrying luggage away from the apartment complex where Krueger and the girl lived earlier Saturday.

The department said investigators suspect foul play in the death of the girl, whom they did not identify.

No details about how she died have been disclosed. Elizabeth Cherchourka, who manages the apartment complex, told Oakland television station KTVU that she often saw the girl riding a bicycle around the complex and that she appeared well cared-for.
