The reason for the kidnapping could not be ascertained.

In a video released Monday night, Sheriff Vernon Warneke called on the public for help.

“There has been no contact and no ransom demand. There is nothing suspicious,” Warneke said.

“We need your help. We’ve sent spies to preach. We’ve pulled out the planes looking for evidence. People are going to work on it 24 hours a day until we get a break in it.”

“We’re asking for your help. We need your help. And we need to get this family home safely.”

Warneke also released photos of the potential suspect:
