Suspects in Missing Nelson Co. Man's Disappearance Denied Bond

Feb. 6 2014

There are new developments today in the Kevin Wayne Quick disappearance case. It's been nearly a week since the 45-year-old Waynesboro Police Reserve Captain was last seen.

Thursday morning, the three siblings - Shantai Shelton, Mersadies Shelton and Daniel Mathis – were denied bond. All three suspects were arrested Tuesday, Feb 4th.

Mersadies Shelton and Daniel Mathis have been charged with the theft of Quick's vehicle, a 1999 Toyota 4Runner, which was found abandoned in mineral on Monday, Feb 3rd.
The third sibling, Shantai Shelton, was arrested on a charge unrelated to Quick's disappearance.

All three are being held without bail at the Central Virginia Regional Jail

Officials say they have received about 100 tips since Quick was reported missing on Saturday, Feb 1st.

"We're using a number of different resources, both technical and good old fashioned police work trying to piece this together,” said Corrine Geller with the Va. State Police. ”We know there are probably folks out there that may have some information that can be very helpful to this case."

Quick reportedly left his mother's residence in Afton late Friday evening to visit his girlfriend about 20 miles away, but he never made it.

His vehicle was captured by surveillance cameras at bank ATM machines in Fork Union on Friday night and in Manassas on Saturday night.

Authorities say they are concentrating their search efforts to Louisa Co. on Thursday due to tips they have received within the last 24 hours.

The reward for information leading to the discovery of Quick has increased to $40,000 thanks to donations from the Waynesboro community.

All three suspects are due back in court on March 18th.
