Police Continue Search For Kevin Quick

Reporter: Garrett Wymer

WAYNESBORO, Va. (WHSV) -- Police continue to search for missing Nelson County man, Kevin Quick.

Corinne N. Geller, a spokeswoman for Virginia State Police, said police are following up on more than 50 tips they have received in a 36-hour window, but the developments from the investigation are taking a toll on police and those who know Quick.

While they may be taking a toll, the community is coming together to do what they can to find him.

"Anytime something happens, you call police, you want them to come help you. Now the police need our help, and it's our turn to give back to them," said Rodney Soulsby, the owner of New Age Auto, who has worked in law enforcement himself.

He started getting pledges for a reward, which is now $12,500 as the search continues.

"It's very comforting at this time. It's about the only thing that can comfort you at a time like this," said Sgt. Brian Edwards with the Waynesboro Police Department.

For Edwards and the Waynesboro Police Department, it's support like that and the emails and phone calls they've received that help them get through.

"In law enforcement, you're more than just co-workers. You depend upon each other for your life, to really look out for each other. So it's more than that co-worker bond. It's a brotherhood, a sisterhood," said Edwards.

"Even though I'm a civilian now and some of the other people who used to be in law enforcement we all still care, we're all still family," said Soulsby, "It just seems sad that this happened, but it's good that the community has become concerned."

Hoping as the investigation goes on, that concern and the cash, will find Quick.

If you'd like to pledge a donation to the reward fund to find Kevin Quick, you can call Soulsby at New Age Auto at 540-943-2050.
