Missing Woman's Husband, In-Laws Charged With Kidnapping

Three family members who face charges in connection with the disappearance of a 25-year-old woman are in custody at the Southeast Ohio Regional Jail after waiving their extraditions on Friday.

William A. Inman II, 26, was arrested with his parents, William A. Inman, 47 and Sandra K. Inman, 46, in Jackson County on Thursday night.  Each face kidnapping charges stemming from the disappearance of the younger Inman's estranged wife, Summer, earlier this week.
 
"There were cops everywhere with guns, big guns, and they were everywhere," said Tiffany Miller, a neighbor of Sandra and William Inman. "Nothing really happens out here, so that's why we don't ever get any excitement, and now it's all coming at once.  And not a good excitement." 

Witnesses told police that Summer Inman was taken on Tuesday night from an alley behind a bank where she was working and forced into a car by two men.   The mother of three has not been heard or seen from since.

William Inman II and his father waived their rights to face a judge for an extradition hearing on Friday morning in Jackson.  They were transferred to the Southeast Ohio Regional Jail in Nelsonville, 10TV's Danielle Elias reported.

Sandra Inman did appear in court was also moved to Nelsonville after waiving her extradition.

Before Sandra Inman was led out of the courtroom in handcuffs, she shared a moment with her mother, telling her that she loved her.

Sandra's mother, Martha Wagner, said her daughter's arrest came as a shock.

"She's my only child," Wagner said. "He's my only grandson. I've been trying, this was a shock. Yesterday morning it was a total complete shock."

The FBI released surveillance photos on Friday afternoon showing Summer Inman working inside the bank before she was kidnapped on Tuesday.  Investigators said they wanted people to see the clothes she was wearing in case they find any discarded items on their property.

Community members and friends of Summer Inman are holding out hope for a positive outcome.

When Summer Inman was young she spent a lot of time at First Church Praise and Worship Center, 10TV's Tanisha Mallett reported.

She married her now estranged husband just after she graduated Logan High School.

"You know I have known Summer all of her life, she grew up in this church and then of course she was married here in 2004," said pastor Michael Martin.

Martin said the congregation is hurt by the turn of events, but not surprised.

"I just know, what I do know, that they weren't really shocked that it was, that it came down to this," Martin said.

Martin said Summer and her three children were in church on Sunday and seemed happy. He said he is struggling with what he will say to the congregation this Sunday, Mallett reported.

Summer Inman is 5 feet 3 inches tall, 120 pounds, with brown hair and green eyes.  She was last seen wearing jeans and a dark T-shirt with white writing.

Investigators said they continue to receive tips from the public and urged anyone with information on Inman's whereabouts to contact the Logan police department at 866-693-9171.
