SABINE PARISH, La. -

The search is still on for Tony Procell who is believed to have been kidnapped at gun point by a Natchitoches Police officer.

Authorities held a press conference at 3 p.m. on Thursday to update the public on the search efforts. Police are now asking for the public's help. Anyone who may have seen a 2004 White GMC Encore on Tuesday between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. needs to call the Sabine Parish Sheriff's Office. Police are also asking for anyone who may have seen anything out of the ordinary or anything suspicious on that day to call.

The Natchitoches Police officer, 34 year-old Robert Barthelemy, who is accused of kidnapping Procell, was arrested Wednesday morning. DeSoto Parish Sheriff Rodney Arbuckle says that Barthelemy allegedly abducted Tony Procell at gunpoint early Wednesday morning.

Bathelemy was captured hours later.

The location that Barthelemy gave authorities on where he dropped Procell off has been searched but police still haven't found Procell. Police said in the press conference on Thursday that there isn't a specific area where they are searching and they're still considering the case as a search and rescue.

Barthelemy was taken to the DeSoto Parish Jail on Wednesday and charged with aggravated kidnapping. On Thursday, police also charged Barthelemy with home invasion.

Procell is still missing at this hour.

    We've been told by many veterans that they receive quality care at the V.A. hospital in Shreveport. But for some getting an appointment to see their caregivers is the challenge. According to our V.A., they do not have a problem getting patients seen quickly - and the numbers they report echo that conclusion. We’ve uncovered concerns, however, over how their numbers look so good - while patients are still waiting to be seen.“Certainly from my viewpoint here, as a veteran, as a physician, the c...
