Multiple agencies search for kidnapping suspects

HUNTLAND, TN (WAFF) - Multiple agencies are searching for two kidnapping suspects.   It all started in the town of New Market in Madison Co, AL around 6:00 Sunday evening.

Investigators with the Franklin Co, TN sheriff's department say two men kidnapped two young men at a convenience store in New Market. They say the suspects drove to Huntland, TN where they stopped at a gas station on Main St.

The sheriff says the two kidnapping victims managed to get out of the car at the gas station and call 911. Huntland Police responded immediately, and a pursuit began. But it only lasted about a half mile before the suspects jumped out of the car and ran into a wooded area.

SAWT teams from three counties are still searching for the suspects at this hour. Call the Franklin Co, TN sheriff's office if you have any information.
