LOGAN, Ala. (WTVF) — Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agents are searching an Alabama home, matching the address of an accused kidnapper.

Roy Michel Nellsch picked up a woman along I-24 in Clarksville. She'd run out of gas and he offered to give her a ride to a gas station.

However, she told police he handcuffed her in the truck and told her he was going to raped her and keep her for a couple of days. She was able to fight him off and escape.

Officers later took him into custody and found some of her belongings in the truck. They also say Nellsch could have committed other crimes involving other victims.

On Wednesday, TBI agents conducted a search warrant on a home at the 6000 block of County Road 940 in Logan, Alabama which matches Nellsch's home address.

TBI officials weren't able to release further details since the investigation is active and ongoing.
