In a worrisome turn of events, the Cass County Sheriff’s Office is currently piecing together the circumstances of an alarming kidnapping involving two male victims. Details emerged that the incident commenced shortly after 5 p.m. on Saturday.
The sequence of events began in Lincoln, Nebraska, where the first victim reported being abducted. The assailant, brandishing a firearm, forced the victim to drive towards Chicago. However, upon reaching Cass County on Interstate 80, the situation escalated when the armed suspect commandeered a second vehicle—a Silver Chevy truck—taking another individual hostage. This second victim is described as an “older white man with a beard.”
The kidnapper is believed to be a black male
The kidnapper has been characterized as a black male, approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing around 160 pounds, and is believed to be in his late 20s or early 30s. He is noted for his well-kept hair and a short beard.
Currently, the whereabouts of the Silver Chevy truck and the direction of the two men remain unknown, with no clear indication if they are still en route to Chicago.
The Cass County Sheriff’s Office is leading the call for any information that could aid in their investigation and ensure the safe return of the individuals involved. Witnesses or anyone with potentially relevant information are urged to contact the authorities at 712-243-2206. The community’s prompt cooperation is critical in these pressing hours.
