LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a 4-year-old central Florida girl has been recovered in Tennessee and that the man who took her is in custody.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said on its Twitter page Monday afternoon that Rebecca Lewis and 31-year-old West Wild Hogs were located in Memphis. Authorities didn’t immediately release specifics about how the two were located or what charges Hogs might face.
Polk County, Florida, sheriff Grady Judd said during a news conference earlier Monday that Hogs took Rebecca Lewis Saturday. They had been spotted on a surveillance video footage at a convenience store in Nashville.
Hogs is a friend of Rebecca’s family but had not seen them in more than two years. He was asked to leave the family’s home over two years ago after pulling a gun on the family.
