Person taken into custody in missing Shoals woman case


Police have taken a man into custody after executing a search warrant Monday around noon.

The Alabama Bureau Investigation, Muscle Shoals Police and HEMSI Search Dogs searched the property at 609 Moss Avenue where 32-year-old Amanda Taylor was last seen on October 17th.  

Officers have been in contact with Taylor's family to determine if the DNA on remains that were found this weekend near 6th Street and Gnat Pond are connected to this missing persons case.

Cadaver dogs focused on a car that was parked in the driveway. Crews later had it towed and taken into police custody.

They spent the rest of the afternoon in the back of the home in a little basement area.

It's unclear exactly what evidence was taken from the home, but we do know crews used sledge hammers and concrete saws in the process.

Ronald Weems was taken from the home.

Amanda Taylor's family told WAFF 48 News off camera that Weems was the last one to see Amanda before she went missing.

Weems did have a few things to say to the family as he was being escorted by police.

Amanda's family says Weems is her sister's ex-husband.

At this point investigators say they cannot release any statements on this case until they sort out Tuesday's evidence with the DA's office.

We'll continue to stay on top of this story and bring you the latest developments just as soon as we learn more.
