Authorities with the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office, Missouri State Highway Patrol and Missouri Department of Conservation are searching for a Columbia man accused of kidnapping, sexual assault and rape.
According to reports, Brian J. Adkison, 23, is wanted for questioning about a kidnapping that occurred on Saturday in Caldwell County and a rape and assault in Boone County. On Monday, after stealing a pickup truck and boat, Adkison was seen by Camden County residents fleeing on foot near the 58 mile marker in the Ivy Bend area of Morgan County.
Law enforcement officials set up a perimeter to search the area, performed a sweep of the surrounding woods and conducted a house-to-house search but did not find Adkison.
He was last seen wearing a black shirt and blue jean shorts. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department at 573-378-5481.
