The vehicle believed to be connected to an Amber Alert issued in Green County, Tennessee Sunday was spotted by authorities on I-26 in Newberry County Monday morning. The suspect is still at learge but the child was later found.
Authorities believe the suspects who kidnapped a 7-month-old boy in East Tennessee were headed in the direction of Georgia or Florida, but the Dodge Intrepid stolen from the child’s mother was found abandoned by a state trooper just after 8 a.m. Monday in South Carolina.
Newberry deputies searched the area, looking for 35-year-old David Jackson, a black male who is 6 feet 2 inches tall, who Tennessee investigators say has a violent criminal history.
Investigators say there were three women involved in the kidnapping who fled in a white Chrysler Sebring 4-door with a Florida license plate, and they believe Jackson and the child may now be in that vehicle.
