On Monday, deputies from the Morgan County Sheriff's Office, the Missouri Highway Patrol and the Missouri Department of Conservation responded to a call to the Ivy Bend area of Morgan County.

The call stemmed from an earlier incident involving a subject by the name of Brian J. Adkison, a 23 year old male from Columbia wanted for his involvement in a kidnapping in Caldwell County Missouri on June 15 and a sexual assault and forcible rape in Boone County.

Adkison was seen by Sunrise Beach police earlier on Monday in a stolen pickup and a pursuit ensued.

Authorities located the pickup in Camden County and then received reports that Adkison had stolen a personal water craft and fled the area.

A short time later the highway patrol located the stolen water craft near the 58 mile marker in the Ivy Bend area.

Citizen reports observe a male subject fitting the description of Adkison fleeing the area on foot.

Authorities set up a perimeter and conducted a sweep of the area woods, as well as a house to house search for Adkison but turned up nothing.

A check point was also initiated on roads leading from the area but Adkison was not seen.

Adkison was last seen wearing a black shirt and blue jean shorts.

Anyone who might have seen him is urged to contact the Morgan County Sheriff's Department at 573-378-5481 or contact your local law enforcement agency.
