SUNRISE BEACH, Mo. -- Authorities are searching the Lake of the Ozarks for a man wanted in a violent abduction.
Brian Adkison allegedly kidnapped his ex-girlfriend, an MU student, near her home in Caldwell County on Saturday. She later called her family from a hospital to tell them she was okay.
Sgt. Paul Reinsh with the Missouri State Highway Patrol says deputies caught up with Adkison Monday around 1 p.m. in Sunrise Beach. After a brief chase, the suspect abandoned his vehicle -- a vehicle stolen from the Blue Springs area -- along Highway 5.
The Patrol has since recovered the vehicle, and is now using a helicopter, tracking dogs, and a marine unit (Water Patrol) around the Lake of the Ozarks. The Camden County Sheriff is assisting.
Reinsh says Adkison may even be on the water. He's wearing a white t-shirt with
a square on the back. No other information on his description was available.
