AMBER Alert issued for missing NC child
Tuesday, September 25, 2012

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Officials with the State Law Enforcement Division have issued an AMBER Alert for a missing child from North Carolina.

According to SLED, 12-year-old Abigail Faith Lefevers was last seen on McNeil Road in Newport, North Carolina.

Lefevers is described as 5'4" tall and weighing 90 pounds with brown shoulder-length hair.

Deputies say Lefevers disappeared from her father's home sometime between 10 p.m. Sunday and 6:30 a.m. Monday.

SLED investigators are also seeking 38-year-old Timothy Howard Newman. The National Sex Offender Registry has identified Newman as a registered sex offender.

Newman was released from prison last year after spending more than six years behind bars for three counts of sex offenses by a substitute parent or guardian.

Investigators say Newman has been talking to Lefevers for the last few weeks, but it's unclear right now how they communicated and how Newman was able to take the young girl.

Newman was last seen by his roommate last night and did not show up for work this morning.

SLED says they believe the pair is traveling in a 1998 red Chrysler Sebring with the North Carolina license plate number AKT 6534. The vehicle was last seen going southbound on Highway 17.
