Champaign County Man Abducted From His Car For Two Days

DAYTON -- Champaign County deputies are asking for your help to track down three men responsible for an abduction. The abduction happened last Thursday on Thackery Road near Coffin Station Road just outside Clark County.

The man who police say is in his 50s walked into a police station two days later and said he had been held against his will.

"My gosh, you're kidding. This is awful," said Ellie Calhoun, who could not believe that an abduction happened right outside her home. "Over there it's very remote. Something could happen very easily down there without anyone knowing about it because there's not really any houses in that area to watch what's going on."

Deputies couldn't believe it happened in their county.

"Very strange, we don't have a lot abductions in Champaign County," said Champaign County Chief Deputy Rick Jordan.

"It was off the road, they had forced it off," Calhoun said of James Corwin's pickup truck. "It wasn't wrecked but it was off the road. It was down in the ditch a little bit so they've lost control."

Corwin's black Ford truck stayed there until the next day when his girlfriend called police saying she just got a message from him saying he was in trouble.

Police are looking for three guys who were in an older model large passenger vehicle.

"This is scary, very scary," said Calhoun.

Two days after the alleged abduction, the men released him near the Upper Valley Mall in Springfield. He somehow got back to Champaign County and told police the story.

"He was very shaken up," said Jordan.

Police say he was taken to the Springfield area right after he was abducted. There has been no word yet what happened to him during those two days. We asked deputies if the public should be concerned.
 
"I think they should be vigilant," said Jordan. "If you saw guys driving around and a big passenger vehicle either driving slow or anything suspicious we will take any that information."

"It's very scary because I walk the dogs around the block here and it's a four-mile block to walk around. I'm definitely not going to be doing that anymore."

Police need your help if you saw or heard anything in the days between March 6 and March 8. If you or anyone you know has any information about this case, contact the Champaign County Sheriff's Office at  937-484-6091.
