Cumberland, Va. (Newsradiowrva.com) - Virginia State Police have cancelled their Critically Missing Adult Alert for Amy Fabian.  Fabian, 43, has not been seen since Friday, when her ex-boyfriend is accused of killing another man at her Cumberland County home.  State Police stress they have not found Fabian, but that the cancellation is a normally procedure after some time has passed.

State Police  are concentrating their search for Fabian in South Hill and Mecklenburg County.   Police are focusing on South Hill because it is there, on Friday morning, that they believe the ex-boyfriend, George KnisleyIV,  carjacked a woman.  The carjacking occurred on foot, which leads police believe that a truck Knisley stole earlier, at least, needs to be in that general area.  The woman in the carjacking was not injured.

Knisley was eventually captured in Raleigh, North Carolina, after a chase.  Police have recovered the carjacked vehicle.  Knisley is being held on the murder charge in Cumberland County.  The man killed in Cumberland has been identified as Matthew Broyles, 29, of Powhatan. Other charges are likely both in South Hill and Raleigh.

Wake county Sheriff's Deputies also say Knisley excaped their custody for a short time during a trasnfer on Tuesday.  He was quickly re-captured with the help of a near-by man.
