Police say a 16-year-old girl has been found safe after she was kidnapped at gunpoint from a Knoxville apartment. They say the kidnapper is still at large.
An Amber Alert was issued Thursday for Harlea Hunter Webster. Knoxville Police said on Facebook that officers responded to a robbery report at the apartment about 1:50 a.m. Police said an unknown black male entered the apartment, demanding money, and then grabbed Harlea by the arm and threatened her with the gun, forcing her out of the apartment.
Police are still searching for the kidnapper. He is described as 35 years-old, about 6 feet tall and 220-230 pounds, with long dreadlocks. He was wearing black pants, a black hoodie sweatshirt, and a black toboggan with white trim and white design.
