The North Port Police Department is warning the public about a suspect they are looking for who is wanted for armed kidnapping.

Aaron Demetris Gainer, 27, is wanted for three counts of Armed Kidnapping, one count of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and one count of Felon in Possession of a Firearm.

Police warn the public to use extreme caution if you spot Gainer and to call 911 immediately. 

Gainer's last known location was Arcadia but police believe he may still be in the area.

Gainer was arrested on kidnapping charges in 2009 but was ruled not mentally/physically able to stand trial on the charge in 2012, according to court records.

North Port Police say that the victims, who are known to Gainer, are all accounted for and are okay.

Who the victims are and their relation to Gainer has not been released to the public at this time.
