The vehicle stolen from John and Nancy Alford following a deadly home invasion last week has been found.

The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation said in a brief statement it was recovered and the agency thanks the public which offered information in the search.

SBI spokeswoman Patty McQuillan said this morning the agency was not ready to provide full details of where the vehicle was recovered, whether it was abandoned or whether any evidence was taken from the silver Mercedes.

Warren County Sheriff Johnny Williams said he could not elaborate beyond the press statement but did confirm the vehicle was located.

Mrs. Alford, 76, was kidnapped and robbed, the Warren County Sheriff’s Office, said.

Mr. Alford made it out of the house and is being treated at Duke University Hospital.

The sheriff’s office said two masked intruders invaded the home on Mulberry Court Friday morning.

One of the intruders drove Mrs. Alford to an undisclosed State Employees' Credit Union branch in Roanoke Rapids and forced her to withdraw money from an ATM, while the second intruder stayed in the home with her husband, the sheriff’s office said.

Mrs. Alford was driven back to the house on Lake Gaston, where the intruders beat her husband before setting fire to the house while the Alfords were tied up inside.
