Four bodies found in Nicholas County

By Staff reports

CARL, W.Va. -- Four bodies were found in Nicholas County on Saturday evening, and State Police believe they are a family -- including two small children -- reported missing on Monday.

Steven Hendrix, Amber Martin, and Hendrix's two children, ages 6 and 4, were reported missing to State Police in Rainelle by Hendrix's daughter on Monday, according to a State Police news release.

On Friday, Hendrix's vehicle was found off Brushy Meadow Creek Road near Carl in Nicholas County. The condition of the vehicle indicated foul play, according to the news release.

The bodies were found on Saturday, in a wooded area about a mile from the vehicle.

State Police believe a man named James Roy Belknap is a suspect in the case. They did not know where he was on Saturday night, but said he might be driving a white F-150 pickup or a Chevrolet Monte Carlo.
