(WTVM) -

Several arrests have already been made, and now FBI Charlotte and FBI Atlanta are offering a $25,000 reward for help finding two more suspects in what authorities are calling an elaborate kidnapping plot.

Frank Janssen was taken from his home in Wake Forest, N.C. on April 5, 2014.

Authorities are now looking for Jakym Camel Tibbs, 21, and Quantavious Thomspon, 18-91. They should both be considered armed and dangerous.

Tibbs is described as 5'7", 155-165 lbs. Thompson is described at 5'7"-5'8", 190-210 lbs.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Tibbs and Thompson is asked to call 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324).

According to public federal documentation, Janssen was targeted by a group operating for the benefit of Kelvin Melton, an inmate at the Polk Correctional Institution in Butner, N.C.  Melton had been prosecuted by Janssen's daughter who is an assistant district attorney in Wake County, N.C. 

Melton was convicted, and is currently serving a state sentence of life without parole.  Melton is now facing additional federal charges for his alleged role in Janssen's kidnapping. 

The following five people were arrested on Thursday, April 10, 2014:       

Jenna Paulin Martin, 21
Tiana Maynard - AKA "Tiana Brooks", 30
Jevante Price - AKA "Flame", 20
Michael Montreal Gooden - AKA "Hot", 21
Clifton James Roberts, 29
