Reward offered in search for missing girl

Heidi Renae Todd

A missing SC child abducted after her mother was brutally beaten in Charleston Tuesday was found in Alabama late Wednesday afternoon.

Thomas Lawson Evans, 37, was arrested after a police chase, Rick Oliver, the Riverside, Ala., police chief, said.

Later in the day, the report says that the Riverdale, Alabama Police Chief Rick Oliver got a call about a suspicious auto parked near railroad tracks. The AP reported the girl was found by police in a auto with Evans and he sped off after handing over Todd.

Initially, the chief said that he did not recognize Todd as a missing girl, but they returned to the firehouse with the girl, where they gave her snacks, a coloring book, chocolate milk and had her watching cartoons as she relaxed.

Charleston police said that Heidi's mother was attacked as she was trying to go into her home.

Evans is charged with kidnapping and more charged are expected.

Heidi was reported missing on Johns Island shortly before 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Charleston Police Department has a press conference on missing 4 year old Heidi Renae Todd, Feb. 14, 2018 in Johns Island, South Carolina.

Heidi's father, a member of the U.S. Coast Guard, was on a training mission at the time of the incident.

Officers found the mother "brutally beaten" but did not find Heidi, Tecklenburg said.

"The attacker pushed her in the home and tackled her to the ground", authorities said.

Charleston police have set up a 24-hour tip line for citizens to report any information about this case.

"The wish and prayer of the Todd family is simply to find Heidi safely".

The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the recovery of Todd.

"What could have been a day of great tragedy has really been a day of joy", Tecklenburg said. Inside was a sleeping man and a young girl-who turned out to be 4 years old, but was sitting in the front passenger seat.

At about 5:50 p.m., Charleston Police conducted a welfare check. SLED issued a be-on-the-lookout to law enforcement agencies Tuesday night according to an official with the department.
