Two Men Arrested in Connection With Missing Pasco Woman

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, wash. -- Two men wanted in the disappearance of a Pasco woman are found thousands of miles apart.

U.S. Marshals say Marnicus Lockhard and his friend, Ashone Hollinquest are both in custody tonight. Lockhard was found in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Holllinquest was arrested in Chandler, Arizona. 

They are both persons of interest in the disappearance  of 19 year old Tiairra Garcia. Garcia has been missing since June 22nd.

Franklin County Prosecutor, Steve Lowe, says Hollinquest and Lockhard are not suspects at this time. They are only persons of interest.

Lowe also says before both men are sent back to Washington State, they will go in front of local judges in Milwaukee and Chandler. 

Lowe says "Theyy both will be brought before local courts and may decision extradition proceedings and at that stage, we'll know whether or not they'll be coming in a very short time frame or it might be a longer time frame up to 30 days or more."

With the case still on-going, U.S. Marshals wouldn't comment on the arrests, but they said they were pleased with the result.
