State Police Searching For Man They Say Kidnapped A Man, Stole Vehicle

West Virginia state troopers are actively searching for a man they said kidnapped a man in Kanawha County and stole another man’s truck in Boone County.

Troopers said the suspect carjacked a man along Montrose Drive Friday at about 3 p.m. and drive to the Rock Castle area of Boone County with the victim still in the vehicle.

Once in Rock Castle, the suspect told the victim to get out of the vehicle and tied him to a tree. The suspect’s vehicle has yet to be located.

After tying the victim to a tree the suspect went to a neighboring home and told a man he needed a ride out of the area. While the man was giving the suspect a ride, he got out of the truck to talk to a neighbor and that’s when troopers said the suspect slid into the driver’s seat and drove off.

The suspect is described as a skinny white male. He is about 5 feet 10 inches tall, about 160 pounds and has brown hair and a beard.

He is considered to be armed and dangerous. State troopers are searching in the Prenter area of Boone County. The car he is believed to be driving is a 2005 silver Ford Escape.
