There is new information in the search for missing 17-year-old  Alexis Murphy.

This weekend police pulled over a car that matched a description given by Randy Taylor, the man police arrested for abducting Murphy.

The Louisa County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to WTVR that a Be on the Lookout (BOLO) order was issued over the weekend for a maroon Chevy with large rims.

That vehicle description matches the one Taylor gave police, along with a description of a man he claims was the last person to see Alexis alive.

Louisa officials confirmed that deputies did pull over a car matching that description in the county over the weekend. Deputies took down the driver’s information and forwarded it to investigators in Nelson County. Those investigators confirm that they plan to talk to the driver.

Another part of this story now developing in Nelson County involves a tire prints that police are investigating.

A man who lives close to an area where Taylor was spotted in the days after Murphy’s disappearance, noted an unfamiliar truck tire print on his property.

Police have taken a mold of that print, but the sheriff’s office has not been able to say yet if that print definitely matches Taylor’s truck.
