Tennessee girl, 14, still missing

An Amber Alert was issued last week for a missing 14-year-old Tennessee girl who was last seen with a 41-year-old man in western North Carolina.

Hayleigh Cheyenne Wilson left her home in Surgoinsville on June 22 and was spotted early June 23 at a Wal-Mart in Marion with Benjamin Shook, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. A vehicle they were believed to be traveling in was found in Grayson, Va., last Thursday.

The TBI said Shook has an active warrant out of Georgia for failing to register as a sex offender.

Hayleigh is described as a white female, 5 feet 5 inches tall and 150 pounds with black hair and hazel eyes. Shook is described as a white male, 6 feet 3 inches tall and 175 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.
