Pittsburgh - Police say a Pennsylvania man free on bond while awaiting charges that he beat his wife and held her captive for nearly two weeks this summer has now kidnapped her and both are missing.

Kevin Ewing, 47, is accused of kidnapping his wife Tierne early on Tuesday from a residence in West Finley Township, south-west of Pittsburgh and not far from the West Virginia border.

Police say he was wearing an electronic ankle bracelet, and a condition of his bond was that he stays at home. Authorities say his bracelet wasn't programmed with GPS.

Police say the woman had a protection-from-abuse order.

Kevin Ewing's attorney says he's praying "for everyone's safe return."
