CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. Three siblings arrested in connection to the disappearance of Kevin Quick will be in court on Thursday.

Captain Quick from the Waynesboro Police Department Reserve Unit was last seen on Friday night when he left his mother's house in Afton.

Virginia State Police arrested Mersadies Shelton, Daniel Mathis and Shantai Shelton on Tuesday in Alexandria. They are being held without bond at the Central Virginia Regional Jail .

Mersadies Shelton and Mathis face charges for the theft of Quick's 1999 Toyota 4runner. The car has been connected to an armed robbery and shooting that occurred on Sunday. The Louisa County Sheriff's Office arrested Mathis in connection to that incident. Shantai Shelton was arrested on some unrelated charges.

At a news conference on Wednesday, Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said currently investigators continue their efforts to locate Quick.

VSP says Kevin Quick was last seen wearing a tan Columbia pullover, blue jeans and tennis shoes.

"We are still searching for him at this time and that has been a main focus of this investigation since he was reported missing on Saturday," said Geller.

According to Geller, some of the search has taken place at Fork Union in Fluvanna County. That is where the car was spotted on Friday.
Surveillance video from an ATM captured the 4runner on Saturday night in Manassas with two unidentified people. VSP did not confirm the people in the surveillance video are any of the siblings.

The car was found in a house on Cedar Hill Road in Mineral. VSP asks neighbors in Louisa County to report anything out of the ordinary.

"Because of the kind of rural and isolated stretch of area where the vehicle was abandoned, we have a reason to believe that when they abandoned the vehicle, they were picked up by another vehicle," said Geller.

Neighbors and businesses in Waynesboro have offered a $30,000 reward for a tip that can lead to find Quick. For Sgt. Brian Edwards with the Waynesboro Police Department, this is an important matter.

"We are hoping that our reward fund will continue to grow and that this money will help bring this case to resolution for Kevin's family," said Edwards.

If you have any information about Quick or the Shelton siblings, you can contact VSP at #77 on a cell phone or at 434-352-7128.

The Shelton siblings will have their court appearance in Louisa County.
