MACON, Georgia (WMGT/41NBC) – Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents arrest a woman in connection to a 1991 kidnapping.

GBI’s Perry Office arrested 46-year-old Melinda McSwain, Thursday.

McSwain is charged with Kidnapping in connection to the Sabrina Long Missing Person Investigation.

Sabrina Long was last seen at her Macon home on August 14, 1991. The GBI was called in to assist Bibb County in April of 1992. And the investigation remained in an “Unsolved” status since then.

By conducting multiple interviews and serving numerous search warrants, the GBI developed enough probable cause to secure an arrest warrant charging McSwain with Kidnapping.

This investigation is still active and ongoing.

If anyone has information concerning this investigation, please contact the GBI TIPS Line at 1-800-597-8477.
