The family of Rebecca Lewis, 4, is begging for her safe return. The little Lakeland girl went missing Saturday morning at her home in the Lazy Daisy Mobile Home Park.
- Updated: Officials: Credible sighting of missing Rebecca Lewis in Tennessee
- AMBER Alert issued Saturday for 4-year-old Rebecca Lewis
- Deputies believe she's with a former family friend, West Wild Hogs
- Hogs might be driving a 2012 grey Nissan Versa, Alabama handicap plate 4-J-L 26
"We just want our baby back home," said Oma Mae Lewis, Rebecca's grandmother. "So if there’s anyone out there, anywhere that can help us bring Becky home, please bring her home to us."
According to reports, Rebecca was last seen in her home around 9 a.m. on October 8 by her 16-year-old sister. She was wearing a pair of blue shorts.
Also missing was a former family friend, West Wild Hogs, who showed up unexpectedly and spent the night with the family.
Hogs, 31, legally changed his name. He’s formerly known as Matthew Clark Pybus.
Investigators say they’re trying to make some sense out of this senseless abduction, but they’re confident Hogs and Rebecca are together.
“Our working theory is that somehow he has picked up 4-year-old Rebecca and that they are together,” said Scott Wilder with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.
Hogs is known to be driving a 2012 grey Nissan Versa, Alabama handicap plate 4-J-L 26.
Investigators said the Lewis family searched the area for over an hour before calling law enforcement. Polk County deputies then conducted multiple searches for Lewis, including a house-by-house search of the surround mobile home park and a search utilzing a K9 unit.
Anyone with information about the missing child or her whereabouts is urged to contact the Polk County Sheriff's Office at 863-298-6200.
