Adynew Alves, 28 of Boston and Stephanie Walker, 28, of Lawrence are thought to have placed the victim in the trunk of a car somewhere near Boston and then driving south.

Alves and Walker then fled farther south on Rte 24 in a blue 1996 Nissan Sentra, according to the Bristol County District Attorney's office. The car could have damage to the backend or tail lights and features a license plate number 478-PK4, according to the DA.
Update: Authorities have found that vehicle near the Taunton/Lakeville border.
As of 3 p.m. Wednesday, Alves and Walker were still at large and considered to be armed and dangerous, according to authorities.
