Brown County Sheriff Make Arrest of Nevada Man Wanted For Kidnapping

BROWN COUNTY - ( January 22, 2022) - On Friday evening, January 21, 2022, the Brown County Sheriff’s Office was asked to respond to the Brown County State Park to assist in locating a suspicious male who was last seen, with a female juvenile, near the south park gate.

Daniel N. Eggers

The male, later identified as Daniel N. Eggers of Nevada, was seen traveling northbound through the park. Deputies initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle on Main Road within the park for a traffic infraction.


During the traffic stop, Eggers refused to identify himself. Deputies arrested Eggers for Refusal to Identify. After determining Eggers identity, it was found that he was wanted out of Nevada on multiple warrants, including kidnapping.

It was later determined the eight-year-old female juvenile in the vehicle with Eggers was the victim of kidnapping in Nevada.

Eggers was booked into the Brown County Jail with local charges and will be held for extradition to Nevada.


The female juvenile was turned over to the Department of Child Services.

We would like to thank the officers with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Brown County State Park staff, and the Nashville Police Department for their assistance.
