Nine-year-old Carlie Trent, who authorities say was abducted by her non-custodial uncle last week, has been located safely in Hawkins County, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
Trent was reported missing May 4 after Gary Simpson, the girl’s uncle by marriage to her father’s sister, signed the child out of school under false pretenses.
Simpson is currently in custody. The arrest apparently came after investigators responded to a reported sighting of he and Trent.
