In a video released Monday night, Sheriff Vernon Warnke pleaded for the public's help in locating the victims and the suspect.

Warnke said, "No contact has been made, nor ransom demands. Nothing from the suspect in this.

"We need your help. We've got detectives out canvassing. We've got aircraft out looking for evidence. People are gonna be working 24 hours on this until we get a break in this.

"We're asking for your help. We need your help. And we've gotta bring this family home safely."

Warnke also released photos of a possible suspect:
