Original Story:

Two people are in custody and officials are searching for two more people after a Mid-Missouri woman reported she was raped and held captive for hours.

The Randolph County Sheriff's Department is looking for Tracey Lynn Stodgell and Michael Coleman Wright. They have been known in the past to have been armed and dangerous.

Court documents indicated the two were part of a group that took the victim to a home outside Renick.; beat and raped her, and put her in an old freezer. After 12 hours inside the freezer, which had air holes, the woman freed herself and got help.

Officers arrested two of the suspects, Sean Williams and Patrick Hallback, on charges of kidnapping, assault, felonious restraint and rape.

Authorities are offering a reward to find Stodgell and Wright. Officers said the two have delted their Facebook pages and are "laying low". Police have few leads, and aren't sure where the two may be hiding.
