CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (WWBT) - Three siblings from Albemarle are in custody in connection with the disappearance of a missing police captain, State Police said Wednesday.
Daniel Mathis, 18; Shantai Shelton, 24; and Mersadies Shelton, 20, are in custody in Alexandria.
The three were arrested at an Alexandria hotel Tuesday in connection with the search for Waynesboro Police reserve Captain Kevin Quick. Quick was last seen Friday night and remains missing.

Waynesboro businesses have worked to raise $30,000 to offer as a reward for information in Quick's disappearance.
A search warrant shows Quick's last communication was two text messages sent to his girlfriend. His Verizon cell phone has been off since 10:52 p.m. Friday. His Discover card hasn't been used since 5:45 p.m. Friday.
Police said Wednesday morning Quick left his mother's house in Afton to go see a woman 20 miles away in Albemarle, with whom he has a four-month-old daughter. Quick has been legally separated from his wife since 2007, though the divorce was never finalized. Quick never made it to the Turtle Tree Apartments where his daughter and mother of the child live. The Turtle Tree Apartment complex is less than two miles from where the suspects live, according to police.
The documents also show Quick was laid off three weeks ago and his severance money hasn't been accounted for.
Quick's SUV was found on Cedar Hill Road in Louisa Monday, not far from where a shooting occurred Sunday night. Police ask anyone who may have noticed any strange cars in the area this weekend to call them with information.
State Police say the silver Toyota 4Runner was also seen in Fork Union Friday and Manassas Saturday.
State Police are also still looking for a man who they believe knows something about the captain's disappearance. They've distributed a surveillance image in the hopes it will lead to new information in the case.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call Virginia State Police at #77 on a cell phone or at (434) 352-7128, or any one of the assisting agencies.
