Bradford, PA on a fine fall day.

The 18-year-old Warren County man wanted for convincing his 15-year-old girlfriend to run away with him has been caught in Maine after, at separate times, telling a husband and wife different stories about themselves.

Kyle Bedow of Grand Valley was picked up in Franklin County, Maine, Wednesday after the husband and wife – an insurance agent and a waitress – were talking to each other about the young couple they had met. When they realized they were talking about the same people, but the stories were different, they did an Internet search, learned Bedow was wanted and contacted police.

A short time later they saw Bedow’s rental car and pulled him over. He was sent to jail to await extradition to Warren County. He is facing felony charges of interference with the custody of a child and concealing the whereabouts of a child. Authorities in Maine say he may be facing charges there as well.

15-year-old Reaghan Chase, also of Grand Valley, was taken into protective custody. The pair had been missing since September 29.

Art Exhibition @ KOA Art Gallery, Blaisdell Hall
Sep 18 – Oct 16 all-day
Art Exhibition @ KOA Art Gallery, Blaisdell Hall | Bradford | Pennsylvania | United States

The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford will hold an exhibition of work by arts faculty and staff from Sept. 18 through Oct. 16.

The exhibition will open Sept. 18 in the KOA Art Gallery in Blaisdell Hall at noon, when a gallery talk and reception will be held. All events are free and open to the public. Hours at the gallery are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and during events in the Bromeley Family Theater.

“Our arts program has really been growing,” said Anna Lemnitzer, assistant professor of art, who coordinated the exhibition. “For example, in the last year, we have added two additional art adjunct professors who teach to full classrooms.”

Lemnitzer said that it is traditional for universities to hold exhibitions of faculty works to showcase their programs.

“The people who work to provide instruction and arts programming here on the Pitt-Bradford campus are fantastic educators whose work doesn’t end when they leave the classroom,” she said.

Work will include ceramic pieces, abstract acrylic paintings, mixed media work, sculptural installation and new genres, and encaustic and oil paintings. Artists are Lemnitzer, Courtney Mealy, Anne Mormile, Merry Riding, Richard Minard and Samila Sosic.

For disability needs related to the exhibition, contact the Office of Disability Resources at (814)362-7609 or clh71@pitt.edu.
