Multiple law-enforcement agencies in and around the central Valley are continuing their search for a 45-year-old Nelson County man who hasn’t been seen since Friday night, according to a release from the Virginia State Police.
The man, Kevin Wayne Quick, reportedly left his mother’s house in Afton at about 10:45 p.m. Friday, saying he was going to a friend’s home in Albemarle County about 20 miles away. But he never arrived and hasn’t been seen or heard from since, according to the release.
His family reported Quick missing to the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office at 6 p.m. on Saturday.
A captain in the Waynesboro Police Department’s Police Reserve Unit, Quick was last seen driving a silver 1999 Toyota 4 Runner with Virginia license plates 614 068, with a Commonwealth of Virginia seal in the middle.
Local and state agencies, including the Virginia State Police, the Waynesboro Police Department., and the Nelson and Albemarle counties’ sheriff’s offices, spent Saturday night and this morning searching for Quick. The state police are leading the investigation.
The release says police have conducted “extensive ground and air searched,” in the areas around the homes and neighborhoods of both Quick’s mother and the friend he was headed to when he disappeared.
During the course of the investigation, law enforcement received information that Quick may be in Northern Virginia.
Quick is described as a 6-foot, 1-inch white man weighing about 200 pounds. He has brown hair and hazel eyes, a medium build and a scar above his left eye. He also wears contact lenses or eyeglasses, the release said.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Virginia State Police at #77 on a cell phone or at (434) 352-7128, or any one of the assisting agencies.
