Wayne County lawmen continue to search for one of two men who were kidnapped Sunday night.
Geniro Jamis and Israil Aguirre were forced out of their vehicle at gunpoint by six men, put into a vehicle and driven off.
Aguirre was released early Monday morning, but the 48-year-old Jamis remains missing.
Deputies say Aguirre was able to clarify some details of the kidnapping. At first lawmen thought the gunmen flashed blue, yellow and red lights at the men's vehicle, making them pull over. Now Aguirre says only a white light was flashed at them. Also, the vehicle is now described as a possible black 1999 Ford extended cab pick-up truck with a camper shell.
Anyone with information on the kidnapping or the location of Jamis should contact the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office at 919-731-1481 or Wayne County Crime Stoppers at 919-735-2255.
