Missing 4-year-old found safe in another state after home invasion

Heidi Renae Todd

Charleston police officers are searching for a missing 4-year-old girl on Johns Island.

Ninth Circuit Solicitor Scarlett Wilson identified the suspect as 37-year-old Thomas Evans who is from the area and was captured in MS following a chase that started in Alabama.

Riverside Fire Chief Tim Kurzejeski and Riverside Police Chief Rick Oliver knocked on the window of the vehicle and told Evans to get out. In the vehicle was Heidi Todd, who had been missing since the prior afternoon.

Initially, the chief said that he did not recognize Todd as a missing girl, but they returned to the firehouse with the girl, where they gave her snacks, a coloring book, chocolate milk and had her watching cartoons as she relaxed.

"We anticipate warrants from the state charges, the local charges for kidnapping", 9th Circuit Solicitor Scarlett Wilson said at the Wednesday night news conference.

DHR arrived around 7:34 p.m. and took Todd away from the Riverside firehouse.

Charleston Police spokesman Charles Francis said Heidi was last seen wearing pink trousers and a blue shirt.

Heidi's father, a member of the U.S. Coast Guard, was on a training mission at the time of the incident.

How Apple plans to debug, revamp iPhone software
When Apple was a smaller company with fewer engineers, customers and devices to manage, says one person familiar with the company. New features for the Apple Pencil and a toggle in the email app to mute notifications for a thread have been pushed back.

The four-year-old girl at the heart of a statewide search has been found alive in Alabama, sources close to the investigation tell us. Police, alerted by the school, stopped by the home to check on her and found the woman badly beaten.

Law enforcement is still trying to determine a motive for the crime. She told police that she instructed Heidi to run and hide when the suspect started attacking her, but the attacker apparently took the girl and fled.

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

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

At this point, Oliver asked Evans out of the auto then turned the vehicle off and put the keys on the dash.

The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information on a 4-year-old girl who disappeared in SC.

Tecklenburg said the mother is in fair condition and has provided "limited information" to investigators.
