CAUGHT: Suspect arrested in missing Columbia County teenager

- An arrest has been made for a missing Columbia County teenager believed to be in extreme danger. 

Suspect, Jason Johnson and abducted teen, Calah Waskow were spotted Saturday afternoon around 3:00 p.m. A motorist spotted their vehicle and called 9-1-1.

Police arrived on the scene and waited for Johnson to come out of a store.  Once the two came out of the store, Johnson was arrested. He was taken to Sevierville County Jail.

Waskow is currently undergoing evaluation, but she is safe.

Calah Noel Waskow, 15, was last seen in Evans, Georgia. Authorities believe she ran away from home and she's with 37-year-old Jason Arlis Johnson, who's wanted for aggravated child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. 

A Levi's Call was issued after authorities said Johnson abducted Waskow last Sunday.
