U.S. Marshals cancel Amber Alert for 14-year-old girl


Police say they have canceled an Amber Alert that was issued for a 14-year-old east Tennessee girl with a 41-year-old sex offender after both were found in Virginia.

U.S. Marshals found the teen and Benjamin Shook in Smythe County, Virginia, and took them to the local sheriff’s office.

The girl left her home on June 22 and was spotted the next day a Wal-Mart in Marion, North Carolina, with Shook.

Witnesses reported seeing Wilson in the company of Shook in Sugar Grove, Virginia on June 24.

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