ATLANTA — The FBI is asking the public’s help in trying to track down potential victims of two truck drivers who are accused of kidnapping women and then demanding a ransom for their release.
The Atlanta office of the bureau said at least one of them had routes that went through Georgia.
Police have arrested Brian Summerson, 25, of Dillon, South Carolina and Pierre Washington, 35, of Chicago in connection to the kidnappings, but they fear more victims may be out there.
The FBI said Summerson’s primary trucking route was along Interstate 95 that went from New Jersey to Miami, as well as Chicago, Illinois, and Kansas City, Missouri. The bureau said when meeting with potential victims, he would tell the women his name was Von or Vaughn.
