LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) – Investigators from Florida to Tennessee are now searching for a 4-year-old girl they say was taken from her home in central Florida by a longtime family friend.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says it received a “credible report” of a sighting of Rebecca Lewis and 31-year-old West Hogs on Sunday night.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office in Florida says a park ranger in Campbell County, Tennessee, reported seeing a man and child matching the description of Hogs and Rebecca on Sunday night.

The pair was spotted at a gas station in Forsythe, Georgia, on Saturday evening in a car with a stolen Alabama license plate.

Authorities say Hogs took Rebecca from her home Saturday morning. A 16-year-old sister says she saw Rebecca sleeping about 9 a.m. but when she woke up again 45 minutes later, she was gone.

Additional Information:

West Hogs is described as white with red hair and green eyes.  He is approximately 5-feet 8-inches tall and weighs 220 pounds.  He has a scar shaped like the letter “L” on the left side of his head and has a tattoo of a blue cross and another of a Chinese symbol.

Rebecca Lewis is white with blonde hair and blue eyes.  She is approximately three feet tall and weighs about 30 pounds.
