Missing 4-year-old girl found safe in Alabama

Police cruisers line the Johns Island subdivision where 4-year-old Heidi Todd was reported missing

A man accused of kidnapping a 4-year-old girl and leading police on a chase from Alabama to MS will return to SC to face charges.

Hours later, her kidnapper, 37-year-old Thomas Lawton Evans, was caught in Mississippi.

According to Al.com, Todd was found by two Norfolk Southern employees who happened to be working on the railroad tracks and spotted a vehicle parked too close to the train tracks around 4 p.m.in a wooded area off Highway 78. When Evans woke up, he appeared nervous, and handed over Todd to Police Chief Rick Oliver, who told Evans they needed to go to the police station to talk.

"She's in the Fire Department drinking chocolate milk and eating cookies", Riverside fire Chief Tim Kurzejeski said.

Heidi Renae Todd's disappearance was discovered Tuesday, after the child's mother didn't collect two of her children from school, reports the Post and Courier. Prosecutor Scarlett Wilson said Evans has been charged with kidnapping and that she expected to file more charges.

Heidi Renae Todd was located in Riverside around 4 p.m.in a business parking lot.

Agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division and the Department of Natural Resources are also assisting Charleston Police and Fire officials as well as rescue teams.

Officials are looking for a 4-year-old girl who disappeared in SC.

"The individual was not invited into the residence", said Interim Charleston Police Chief Jerome Taylor earlier. The friend reported Heidi missing around 5:50 p.m. February 13.

What he decides to do holds major consequences for Canada - the biggest supplier of both steel and aluminum south of the border. Any exclusions granted could result in changed tariffs or quotas for the remaining products to maintain the overall effect.

Riverside Mayor Rusty Jessup said "it's a great day".

Law enforcement is still trying to determine a motive for the crime.

The circumstances behind Heidi Todd's kidnapping are still not clear.

Heidi was last seen wearing pink trousers and a blue shirt.

Evans was described by the police as a Hispanic man with a stocky build, brown eyes, short black hair, brown eyes, and was said to be dressed in all gray.

"She really got beat up badly and she needs our moral support", Tecklenburg said.

The FBI is now offering a $10,000 reward for anyone who has information about her whereabouts.

Police say an Amber Alert was not issued yet because the case didn't meet the criteria.
