Both men were ordered held on $200,000 bail.

Their alleged kidnapping victim, James Robertson, 37, was seen getting into a silver Toyota Camry in Avon at 12:50 p.m. Jan. 1.

Two men displayed law enforcement badges and handguns at Robertson’s home before leaving with him in the car, State Police have said.

He has not been found.

“The investigation into Mr. Robertson’s disappearance continues; considerations relative to the ongoing investigation limit the information that can be disseminated at this time,” the district attorney’s statement said.

“The district attorney’s office, State Police, and Avon police will not be issuing further comment at this stage.”

Morrison and Ricci are due back in court on June 27 for probable cause hearings.
