Kidnapping Update


Sheriff's investigators said two of the three men involved in Friday's abduction and beating of a Houston County teen-ager are in a Houston County Courtroom facing kidnapping charges.

Family members of the 16-year-old victim reported him missing. By 10 p.m. Friday, the family received a phone call from the kidnappers.

They drove him to the Huntsville - Decatur area where he was stripped and beaten. One of the suspects is a juvenile, but the Houston County Sheriff's office wants to treat him as an adult offender.

Authorities are still searching for a third suspect.
