Two Abducted Children Found Safe; Kidnappers Under Arrest

Missing Tennessee Children Safe Thanks to Rainsville Police

Two children reported kidnapped in Tennessee are now safely back with their custodians, thanks to a quick response by Rainsville Police; the two children were part of a statewide Amber Alert in Tennessee.

A two-year-old girl, and a nine-month-old girl, were reported kidnapped in Shelbyville, Tennessee on March 13th – and it appeared to be a family-related incident.  Around 7:30pm March 18th officers with the Rainsville Police Department received a tip from police in Shelbyville – regarding a U-Haul truck, at Burger King in Rainsville.  According to that tip – the two kidnapped children were in the vehicle.  A man, and a woman, were reportedly “just pulling away from the drive-thru window,” when officers pulled in front of them.

Officers found Casey Campbell, 32 from Scottsboro, and Charles Garrett, 26 from Gadsden, along with the two children in the cab of the truck.  Reportedly the children were unharmed – and the Department of Human Resources was called in getting them back to their custodians.

Campbell was arrested on a Kidnapping warrant, and was transported to the Rainsville Jail, where she was awaiting extradition to Tennessee, and Garrett was arrested on an outstanding warrant issued by the Scottsboro Police Department.

The Department of Human Resources, the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office, and Shelbyville Police all took part in that case, which remains open, and reportedly more charges could be added both in Alabama and Tennessee
