Based on initial reports, it appears that wanted kidnapper Brian Adkison of Columbia, Mo. has been taken into custody by police at a residence on or near the water of the Lake of the Ozarks in Mallard Bay in the Route J West area of Morgan County shortly before 3 p.m. Friday, June 21.
The details of how he was apprehended are not yet available.
This is the fifth day of searching for Adkison in the lake area after Sunrise Beach Police Chief Dave Slavens initially spotted him in a stolen truck in the Route TT and Pisces Rd. area of the village. Law enforcement agencies from the region have hunted for Adkison by land, water and air since then.
The 23-year-old is wanted for his involvement in a kidnapping in Caldwell County on June 15 and a sexual assault and forcible rape in Boone County.
