The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation issued an AMBER Alert for 9-year-old Carlie Trent from Rogersville, Tennessee. This was previously an endangered child alert, but it was upgraded Thursday morning.
Carlie is 9-years-old, 4-feet-8 inches tall, and weighs 75 pounds. She has blonde hair and blue eyes.
Officials said she is with her "non-custodial uncle" Gary Simpson. Simpson is described as a 57-year-old male who stands 5-feet-10 inches tall and weights 160 pounds. He is balding with brown hair and brown eyes.
He was last seen driving a white 2002 Dodge Conversion Van with TN registration 173GPS. The van has a dark stripe down the middle with light gold running boards and paint is chipping off of the hood. Warrants have been issued for Simpson for Kidnapping.
Carlie was removed from school yesterday by Simpson, who is her uncle by marriage, under false pretenses. He has no custodial rights to Carlie. Currently their whereabouts are unknown.
If you have seen the child, subject or vehicle, please call the Rogersville Police Department at 423-272-7555 or TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
