Kidnapped 4-year-old girl reunited with family

LAKELAND, Fla. -- A 4-year-old girl who was kidnapped has been reunited with her family in Florida after a five-state Amber Alert was issued.

Rebecca Lewis was found in Memphis, Tennessee, on Monday after authorities said 31-year-old West Wild Hogs, who was previously known as Matthew Clark Pybus, abducted her from her Florida home on Saturday, according to Bay News 9.

Authorities said a security guard from a hospital noticed Hogs from an Amber Alert and called police.

Rebecca, who appeared to be uninjured, was reunited with her family in Lakeland, Florida, on Tuesday.

Hogs, from Seale, Alabama, was said to be an old friend of Rebecca's family, but police said he hadn't seen the family in two years.

Authorities said it remained unclear why Hogs would take Rebecca and run.

The Polk County Sheriff said social media and an amber alert helped track them down.
