Officials say the man accused of kidnapping a Wausau, Wisconsin mother hasn't given them any information about where she is.

Detectives interviewed Dale Milton Robinson within hours of his arrest near the Canadian border Wednesday.

They asked him about 34-year-old Deanna Scantlin's disappearance, but Marathon County Sheriff Randy Hoenisch says Robinson didn't want to talk about it.

Robinson was charged last Friday in Marathon County Circuit Court with kidnapping and theft in Scantlin's disappearance.

Scantlin was last seen early July 14 as she closed the Wildlife Refuge tavern in rural Hatley, Wisconsin.

Court records say police found some of her belongings, including her purse, in a garage at Robinson's rural Antigo, Wisconsin, home last week.

Hoenisch says Scantlin's disappearance is being investigated as a homicide
