They also asked for the public’s help in the search Saturday: Logan police asked people in the Logan and Hocking county areas to be on the lookout for any signs Summer had been on their property, including nearby fields, streams and park grounds.

Investigators also stressed the importance of searching areas near roadways, bridges and overpasses for signs of recent suspicious activity or clothing similar to what Summer was wearing Tuesday, March 22.

Summer is a white female who is 5 feet 3 inches tall. She weighs about 120 pounds and has brown hair and green eyes.

She had on blue jeans and a black or dark-colored T-shirt with white lettering when seen last. The T-shirt said, “I don’t have an anger problem, I have an idiot problem.”

Logan police asked the public to call them immediately at 740-385-6868 with any potential evidence. You should not touch the item; note the location and call police.

Eyewitness accounts indicated two male suspects forced Summer into a vehicle outside Century National Bank in the area of Hunter and Market streets in Logan at about 11 p.m. Tuesday.

Summer’s estranged husband and his parents were arrested on kidnapping charges at about 9:30 p.m. Thursday at a home in the 5900 block of Raysville Road in Jackson County.

The Inmans do not own the Raysville Road home; their residence is listed off Fay Road in Akron, Ohio.

The three suspects did not fight extradition from Jackson County Friday morning. Only Sandra made a court appearance Friday morning; the younger and elder Inman did not.

Summer filed for a divorce from the younger Inman in June 2010. According to the divorce filing, the younger Inman threatened to kill her if she were to leave with the children. Summer also said in the complaint her husband would hide her car keys and cell phone and hold her captive inside their home.

A report from the Vinton County sheriff’s office indicated a deputy was called to the elder Inman and Sandra’s previous residence in Dec. 2010. Summer and her boyfriend, Adam Peters, were at the home to pick up her belongings when a fight began. The report indicated the elder Inman threatened to shoot Peters. The elder Inman was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct out of the incident.

The younger Inman and his parents were transported to Southeastern Regional Jail and booked Friday. They are being held without bond.

They are scheduled to be arraigned at 1 p.m. Wednesday in Hocking County common pleas court.
