Amber Alert In Tennessee
The suspects sought in connection with the AMBER alert from Greene County, Tennessee were taken into custody this morning in Miami, Florida.
The case started Sunday afternoon in Tennessee when the suspects abducted a 7 month old child; however, the case drew substantial local attention on Monday when one of the vehicles used in the abduction was found abandoned on I-26 in Newberry County.
The child was turned over to law enforcement late yesterday evening in Miami by the paternal grandmother. The child was unharmed in the incident.
The search continued for suspects, who were identified as the biological father, who did not have any custodial rights, and 3 females who assisted him in the abduction. The father and the 2 identified females were arrested this morning in Miami.
It remains unclear to local authorities what if any role the third woman identified only as “Bunny” played in the incident.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and law enforcement officers involved in this case,” said Sheriff Lee Foster. “We are pleased we could offer some small assistance to them, and we know that they are relieved that the child is home safe and the suspects are in custody. This is truly a best possible ending to every parent’s worst nightmare
