COLUMBIA COUNTY, GA (WFXG) -

Columbia County deputies are looking for two men who tried to kidnap someone from the Tudor Branch subdivision Thursday afternoon. 

Two men wearing ski masks and armed with handguns approached the victim outside a home on Hawksmoor Way around 2:30, according to the Columbia County Sheriff's Office. The men demanded that the victim go inside the house, but the victim refused.

The men left the area in a white car, and a deputy later spotted the car on Belair Road. After a brief pursuit, the deputy was involved in a minor wreck with the men. No injuries were reported. 

Deputies lost sight of the car on Jimmie Dyess Parkway. Deputies said the tag on the car the men were driving was stolen from another vehicle earlier Thursday. 

Deputies said the men in the surveillance photos are suspects in the attempted kidnapping. The photos were taken at the Grovetown Walmart prior to the incident.
