Authorities look for kidnap suspect, victim

WHISPERING PINES – Law enforcement officials are searching for a man who is alleged to have kidnapped his girlfriend from her home on Saturday.


Thomas Miller, 37, allegedly kidnapped 30-year-old girlfriend Sally Martin from her Parnassus Drive home on Saturday, sheriff's officials reported.


Miller, who is armed and considered extremely dangerous, was seen on foot dragging a barefoot and injured Martin into the Boggs Mountain area, according to officials.


On Saturday evening, the Lake County Sheriff's Office used a telephonic warning system to alert residents in surrounding areas, including Middletown and Cobb, of the situation.


Sheriff Rod Mitchell told Lake County News on Sunday afternoon that Miller and Martin have not yet been located.


“The suspect and victim are not married, to our knowledge, but they have been together a very long time,” he said.


Mitchell said he was reluctant to release anything about potential motive at this point.


Miller is described as being just under 6 feet tall, with heavy tattoos on both arms. He also is missing three fingers.


Martin is 5 feet, 7 inches tall and about 130 pounds, with red hair and blue eyes. She was last seen without shoes and is reported to be injured.


Officials warn that anyone who sees Miller should not approach him but should call 911 immediately.
