KINGSTON, Mo. - A Hamilton, Mo., woman who was kidnapped from near her home Saturday is now in a Boone County hospital and authorities are searching for her ex-boyfriend.
The Caldwell County Sheriff announced Sunday that a 23-year-old woman's family had reported her missing Saturday and that they came to suspect her ex-boyfriend, Brian J. Adkison, was involved.
Early Sunday morning, the sheriff learned that the victim had called her family from a hospital in the Columbia, Mo., area. Sheriff's Lt. Brett Odell said he could not comment on her condition, but said that she had been kidnapped, and that charges are "pending" against Adkison in the case.
Adkison is believed to frequent the Caldwell County, Boone County, Camden County, Columbia, Mo., and Sunrise Beach, Mo., areas.
