AMBER ALERT: Pair spotted at gas station in GA

- The subjects of a 3-state Amber Alert were spotted at a gas station in Georgia Saturday evening.

4-year-old Rebecca Lewis and 31-year-old West Hogs were captured by surveillance cameras at a gas station off Interstate 75 in Forsythe Georgia around 6:30 p.m. Saturday, the Polk County Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post early Sunday morning.

The post said Rebecca was in good health. She could be seen wearing a pink dress and Hogs was wearing a light colored t-shirt and blue jeans.

The sheriff's office said Hogs is still driving a 2012 Grey Nissan Versa 4-door with Alabama Handicapped plate: 4JL26, which was reported as stolen by his mother in Alabama. The sheriff's office said their destination was still unknown. 

The Amber Alert was initially issued in Florida, then expanded to Georgia and Alabama. A telephone tips hotline has been set up for tips regarding the whereabouts of Rebecca and Hogs: it is 1-877-419-0934. Anyone who has any information about this case is asked to call this number.

Deputies said they think West Wild Hogs is a family friend. Polk sheriff's deputies said he legally changed his name from Matthew Clark Pybus to West Wild Hogs some time ago. Hogs is from the Seale Alabama area.

The Polk County Sheriff's Office said Rebecca Lewis' 16-year-old sister last saw her sleeping at about 9 a.m. Saturday morning. Around 9:45, the sister woke back up and the victim was not in bed. According Rebecca's parents, they searched the area for over an hour before calling law enforcement.

Once deputies arrived, they conducted multiple searches of the residence and conducted a house-by-house search with negative results.

Sheriff's office K-9 and bloodhound officers also searched with no luck. A helicopter was used to help the search, as well.
