NELSON COUNTY, Va.-- Three Albemarle County siblings have been charged in connection with the disappearance of a Nelson County man. Despite Wednesday’s arrests, the search still continues for missing Waynesboro police reservist Kevin W. Quick, 45, of Rockfish, Va.

Virginia State Police took Mersadies Shelton, 20, and Daniel Mathis, 18, both of the 2600 block of Barracks Road West in Albemarle County, Va., into custody without incident. The arrests took place at a City of Alexandria hotel at approximately 11 p.m. Tuesday. They have each been charged by state police with possession of stolen property/grand larceny for the theft of Quick’s silver 1999 Toyota 4Runner.

Daniel Mathis was also arrested on four felony warrants and three misdemeanor warrants issued by the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office for his connection involving an on-going shooting investigation by the sheriff’s office on Feb. 2, in the 700 block of Mica Road.

Shantai M. Shelton, 24, was also taken into custody at the same location on an unrelated outstanding arrest warrant issued by the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office. Shelton lives at the same address as her siblings.

All three are being held at the Central Virginia Regional Jail on no bond.

Quick was last seen Friday night as he left his mother’s residence in Afton, Va. He was headed to a friend’s residence at Turtle Creek Apartments in Albemarle County, Va.

He never arrived at his friend’s apartment. Quick’s abandoned SUV was recovered Monday at a residence in Mineral, Va.

Over the weekend, the 4Runner was captured on surveillance video Saturday night in Manassas, Va., along with two unidentified individuals. The same individuals were also captured on surveillance video Friday night in Fork Union, Va.

The Waynesboro business community is generously offering $30,000 as a potential reward for anyone with information that leads to Quick’s discovery.

Investigators are still asking for the public’s help and encouraging anyone with information about Quick or any one of the three Shelton siblings to call the Virginia State Police at #77 on a cell phone or at (434) 352-7128, or any one of the assisting agencies.

Quick is a white male, 6’1 in height and weighs approximately 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, with the assistance of the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office, Albemarle County Police Department, Charlottesville Police Department, Waynesboro Police Department, Prince William County Police Department, Alexandria Police Department, and the FBI.
