After less than a week on the run, a man charged with kidnapping a University of Missouri student has been captured. The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office announced Friday that Brian Adkison, 23, of Columbia, was caught during a residential burglary call. Authorities say he stole several boats before he was captured.
Caldwell County prosecutors have charged Adkison with kidnapping his ex-girlfriend. He is accused of injuring and terrorizing her before dropping her off at a Columbia hospital on the morning of June 16.
Adkison also is charged in Boone County with first-degree burglary, rape, and deviate sexual assault.
More than 50 officers, a helicopter, and dogs were involved in the search for Adkison.
Adkison is being held in a Morgan County jail.
