The 45-year-old has been missing since Friday, and on Thursday, investigators found a body in Goochland Virginia, just west of Richmond.

Earlier on Tuesday night, 18-year-old Daniel Mathis and his two sisters arrived at the Louisa County Court for a bond hearing. Mathis and his 20-year-old sister Mersadies Shelton were arrested in connection with Quick’s disappearance.

Mathis is facing several felonies, and his bond was denied. His 24-year-old sister Shantai was also arrested on an unrelated charges.

Investigators say Quick left his mother’s house around 10:15 p.m. on Friday night. He was reported missing on Saturday when he didn’t show up at a party he had planned for his younger brother. Two people were seen with his Toyota FourRunner at an ATM late that night, and they are suspected of using it in an armed robbery and shooting.

Both Mersadies Shelton and Daniel Mathis were both charged with the theft of Quick's vehicle, which was found abandoned in Louisa County. Shantai Shelton was arrested on an outstanding warrant.

All three are from Albemarle County.

As detectives gather evidence, cops use bloodhounds to try and pick up a scent, and residents are fearing the worst:

"Something bad happened to the man. It had to have been," says Chris Woodson.

A reward for Quick's discovery has now reached $30,000.
