Man reportedly kidnapped


A Harford County man who might have been kidnapped Monday remained missing yesterday, despite his family paying at least $10,000 in ransom for his return, police said.

Jeryl Anthony Singleterry, 26, of Edgewood was last seen about 5 p.m. Monday driving a green 1996 minivan with Chesapeake Bay tags 23048CB, moments after leaving his grandmother's house on East Hoffman Street in Baltimore, police said.

Several times Monday night, Singleterry and a man who might have been the kidnapper contacted the family about where to drop off ransom money - an undisclosed site in eastern Baltimore County.

A family member dropped off the money at the location and it was picked up, police said. When Singleterry failed to show up yesterday morning, the family called Baltimore County police, said Bill Toohey, a police spokesman.
