Most wanted fugitives: New sighting reported hours after Hudson Valley home invasion

Earlier story:

New York State Police are intensifying their search Sunday for two fugitives -- a man and woman, both in their 20s -- wanted for kidnapping and attempted murder and who were confirmed on Saturday morning to be in the Hudson Valley.

The two, among the 10 most wanted in Tennessee, broke into a home and terrorized a resident of Bloomingburg in Orange County earlier Saturday morning, leaving a 66-year-old homeowner hospitalized with a head injury, according to the Times Herald-Record. Neighbors had observed a car parked on the street before the home invasion, but it was too dark out for them to provide a description of the vehicle, the report said.

The fugitives, 24-year-old Jarret Cole Heitmann and 22-year-old Makayla Danielle Stilwell are armed and extremely dangerous, according to police. They are believed to be boyfriend and girlfriend.

Heitmann is described as being 6-foot-1, 165 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes.

Stilwell is 5-foot-9, 145 pounds with brown hair and green eyes.

The two are accused of shooting a 34-year-old man in Tennessee this past Tuesday and then kidnapping a woman they allegedly used as bait in the attack, according to the Johnson City Press. The shooting victim remains hospitalized with a chest wound sustained after the woman was reportedly forced by the fugitives to knock on the man's door in order to get him to exit his mobile home.

State Police are searching the area and ask the public to report any information to the State Police in Middletown at 845-344-5300 or the State Police barracks in Wurtsboro at 845-888-2494.
