    It looks like Surgoinsville,TN to Marion,NC is about a 2 1/2 hour drive. If she was spotted at Walmart on June 23,Tuesday morning and the amber alert was just issued this morning, they're probably into SC or VA by now.

    My guess is that they are heading to Georgia, since that is where he is from. The Amber Alert should be for all of the East Coast/Southeast.

    Thanks for this, the media should publish that picture as well since he looks almost completely different without his beard and could have shaved it by now.

    Just found this:
    http://www.timesnews.net/article/908...d-sex-offender
    From the article:
    "Surgoinsville police chief James Hammonds told the Times-News Shook and W met online. W allegedly stole her step-father's vehicle and met Shook at an unknown location.

    The two were allegedly caught on video together when she tried to use her step-father's credit card at the Marion, N.C. Walmart."

    There are some pics on the web surfacing of the video shots of them in walmart together but I can't find a reputable news source with them so I can post. The shots of her look a bit different than the media pics. Her hair looks longer.

    Hopefully he doesn't harm her and will let her go.
    Don't mind the misspellings.

    I think several of the news outlets have updated. Found this one with interview with her father:
    http://www.wbir.com/story/news/2015/...girl/29204073/
    From the article it looks like LE believes they may be back in TN this morning as a ping from Shook's phone in Morristown (about an hour away from Surgoinsville). Also, her father believes they met through the app "kik" just like you predicted Slowbutsteady. Hoping she's able to get away or at least can convince him to return her to her family.

    Surveillance photos spotted her at a Walmart in Marion, NC Tuesday morning wearing a flower top and in the company of 41-year-old Benjamin Shook.

    Shook currently has an active warrant for failure to register as a sex offender out of Georgia. Authorities say the two may be in a 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Track with a Tennessee tag D-6020D.
