4-year-old girl found in Memphis, alleged abductor arrested

Rebecca Lewis, for whom an Amber Alert was sent out over the weekend, has been located in Memphis, Tennessee, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

Police have also detained a suspect matching Lewis' alleged kidnapper's description.

Lewis, 4, and West Hogs, were spotted by a Tennessee park ranger Sunday night after an Amber Alert was issued in Florida and Georgia.

Hogs was described as a longtime friend of the family. He showed up in Polk County on Friday unannounced and arrived at the family's home Saturday morning and abducted Rebecca, taking her to a nearby McDonald's restaurant and then driving with her to Georgia.

The two were spotted in Forsyth, Georgia on Saturday at approximately 6:30 p.m. at a gas station just off of Interstate 75. She can be seen wearing a pink dress with light colored leggings and he was wearing a light colored t-shirt and blue jeans.


Hogs was driving a 2012 Grey Nissan Versa 4-door with Alabama Handicapped plate: 4JL26 (reported as stolen out of Alabama).

On Sunday night, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations said it received a credible report of a sighting of the two in the area of Cove Lake State Park in Campbell County, Tennessee.

On Monday morning, Hog was spotted at 2:28 a.m. in Nashville. Authorities did not release any more details of the sighting.

Law Enforcement agencies in Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Alabama were investigating.
