Police Still Searching for Jonathan Austin Weddington

One man is still in the wind, while another has been arrested.

Tanner Spears, 21 of Pikeville was arrested Friday, while the whereabouts of Jonathan Austin Weddington, 23 are unknown.

The men were indicted by a Floyd County grand jury on multiple charges of kidnapping, robbery and theft over $10,000 dollars.

The police believe that both Spears and Weddington are responsible for binding Orville and Hazel Adams with duct tape and holding the elderly couple at gunpoint back in September.

Troopers state the Weddington is also a person of interest in several Pike County area robberies and home invasions.

Anyone with information on Weddington and his whereabouts are asked to contact Kentucky State Police. Callers may remain anonymous.
