Authorities: Missing Tennessee Girl Found Safe
ROGERSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A 9-year-old girl abducted more than a week ago when her uncle signed her out of school has been found safe.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation posted on its official Twitter page that Carlie Marie Trent was found safe Thursday and 57-year-old Gary Simpson had been arrested. Earlier Thursday, the TBI had added the uncle to its Top 10 Most Wanted list, and officials warned that the girl was in imminent danger.
Earlier in the week, Simpson’s vehicle was thought to have been spotted in parts of Idaho, according to Idaho State Police, including Mountain Home and Idaho Falls. However, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation told ISP that it had received calls about possible sightings from people in 11 different states.
