WAYNESBORO, Va. (WHSV) -- Three people are now in jail for their connection in the disappearance of Kevin Quick.
The three, Mersadies Shelton, 20, and Daniel Mathis, 18, and Shantai M. Shelton, 24, are all siblings and made their first court appearance earlier Thursday in Louisa County.
Mathis was denied bond, but his sisters didn't have hearings yet because their court-appointed attorneys weren't there.
The two are still being held without bond.
Thursday's search efforts are focused in Louisa County based on additional tips that have come in the past 24 hours; however, as the days go by and the search continues, the possibility of Quick still being alive decreases.
"With each passing day, that kind of, those kind of chances, kind of shrink, but for Kevin's family, and for our family here, his other family, we are staying hopeful. We have to do that for the sake of the family," said Sgt. Brian Edwards with the Waynesboro Police Department.
The three are scheduled to be back in court on March 18.
The reward money has now reached $40,000 for information that leads to Quick's whereabouts due to contributions from Waynesboro residents and businesses.
