Virginia State Police have announced that three Albemarle County siblings have been arrested in connection with the disappearance of Kevin Quick.

The siblings live less than two miles from Quick's intended destination the night he went missing.

Police say 20-year-old Mersadies Shelton and 18-year-old Daniel Mathis (aka Shelton) were arrested in the City of Alexandria without incident. They are charged with one count of grand larceny.

Shantai Shelton, 24, was taken into custody on an outstanding warrant in Louisa County.

All three are being held without bond at the Central Virginia Regional Jail in Orange County.

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. Quick's vehicle was believed to have been involved in that incident.

Police say they have not yet found Quick. A reward for information in the case has grown to $30,000.

Quick was last seen leaving Afton to go to the Turtle Creek apartment complex in Albemarle County.

The siblings who were arrested live in the 2600 block of Barracks Road West in Albemarle County.

State police say there will probably be additional charges to come and say the possibility of other suspects is still out there.


Authorities are holding a news conference on the search for missing Nelson Co. man, Kevin Wayne Quick.

Quick, a Captain with the Waynesboro Police Deptarment's Reserve Unit, was last seen Friday, Jan. 31st.

The news conference is scheduled for 5 p.m.

The reward for information to find missing Nelson County man, Kevin Wayne Quick, has increased to $22,500.

According to a police affidavit, Quick was laid off from his job and received a severance package, but nobody seems to know where the money is.

The affidavit also says Quick's credit card hasn't been used since 5:45 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 31st.

Forty-five-year-old Quick was last seen leaving his mother's house in Afton Friday night.

Police are asking anyone who may have seen Quick or his silver 1999 Toyota 4Runner over the weekend, to call Virginia State Police by cell at #77 or calling 434-352-7128.

Authorities have also released a photo of a man they believe knows something about Quick's disappearance.
