Foul play feared in disappearance of police reserve captain

New information suggests foul play in the disappearance of a Nelson County police reserve captain, who was last seen in the Manassas area on Saturday, Virginia State Police said Monday morning.

Kevin Wayne Quick, 45, was reported missing by his family on Saturday, and local and state authorities have been searching for him since then. Photographs obtained by the state police have law enforcement authorities “gravely concerned” about his safety, but they did not disclose why.

Quick was last seen leaving his mother’s home in Afton, Va. at 10:15 p.m. on Friday night, police said. Quick was headed to a friend’s home at the Turtle Creek Apartments in Albemarle County, Va., about 20 miles away, but never arrived.

Police have obtained photographs featuring two unidentified adult males, who investigators believe may have information regarding Quick’s disappearance. Quick’s silver 1999 Toyota Forerunner also appears in the photos that place the vehicle in Fork Union, Va. on Friday and in the Manassas area on Saturday.

Quick, who is a captain in the Waynesboro Police Department’s reserve unit, is a white male, 6 feet 1 inch tall, and weighs about 200 pounds. He has brown hair, hazel eyes and medium build. He wears contacts or glasses and has a scar above his left eye.

His Forerunner has Virginia license plates 614-068 with a state seal in the center.

Local and state police have searched areas near his mother’s and friend’s residences in Afton and Albemarle County on Saturday and Sunday. Extensive ground and air searches have also been conducted.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Virginia State Police at #77 on a cellphone or at (434) 352-7128.
