CARYVILLE, TN (WLAF) – A missing Juvenile from Texas was recovered in Campbell County on Wednesday. During the investigation, several individuals, including the child’s biological father were arrested at the scene on active warrants.
On July 28, the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office was notified that a missing juvenile from Texas could possibly be in the Campbell or Anderson County area. Sergeant Tosha Tackett took the initial report and reported information to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to initiate an AMBER alert.
Later Wednesday evening, deputies Tim Powers and Joseph Weaver received information that the child may have been located at a residence in the Cherry Bottom area of Caryville. Deputies were familiar with the homeowner and were able to receive additional information, leading them to a second residence on Waddell Lane, also in Caryville.
After arriving at the second residence, deputies located the vehicle believed to be driven by the biological parents. However, there was no answer at the door of the home. Deputies made contact with an individual, identified as Donnie Daugherty, sitting in a car on the property and confirmed active arrest warrants on the individual.
While deputies were arresting Donnie Daugherty, a second car pulled into the drive way, and deputies visually identified the missing juvenile, Anthony Seybert, in the vehicle. Based on the report, deputies Powers and Weaver “safely took the juvenile into their care.”
As deputies began to leave the scene, a third vehicle pulled into the driveway. Deputies confirmed the identity of the occupant as the juvenile’s biological father, David Seybert, and confirmed active arrest warrants out of Anderson County.
Seybert was also placed under arrest and both individuals were transported to the Campbell County Jail.
In a release from the CCSO, the juvenile, Anthony Seybert was safely returned to his custodial grandparents. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 07/29/2021-NOON)
