Four Year-Old Girl Back Home After Missing More Than A year

(WVLT) - A four year-old girl is home with her family after being missing from Tennessee for more than a year.

Police say Ricky Evans took his daughter, Rickel Fitch , when he fled Tennessee from a federal drug warrant in June of last year.

Friday, US Marshals arrested Evans in Texas, and found out his daughter had been reported missing.

They believe his girlfriend then drove the girl to Memphis, and dropped her off at the home of her paternal grandmother.

Police are now looking for the girlfriend, who will likely face kidnapping charges.
