Fayette County deputies need your help to find two men who held a married couple at gunpoint and then kidnapped their daughter.
It happened around 5pm Wednesday afternoon.
Police say two black men, armed with guns, forced their way into a house in the Terry Avenue area of Oak Hill. The men bound a 55-year-old man, his 45-year-old wife, and their 22-year-old daughter with duct tape. They wrapped the 22-year-old woman in a blanket and forced her into a burgundy car. We're told one of the men took off in that burgundy car, while the other took off in the couple's green Cadillac Escalade.
The couple was able to free themselves from the duct tape and call 911.
The couple's daughter said the men left the Escalade near the intersection of U.S. Route 19 and WV Route 612. The men then drove her to a garage near Carlisle where they released her. The woman was able to flag down a car and get to a gas station where she called 911.
The first suspect is 6'2" tall and weighs 190 pounds and the second suspect is 6' tall . Both were wearing dark colored clothing and masks.
Anyone with information should call Fayette County Emergency Services at (304) 584-3590 or Crime Stoppers at (304) 255-7867.
