CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Two missing sisters from Mooresville have been found safe in Tennessee.
Officials said Keara and Siera Hess are being taken to a local hospital in Tennessee for examination.
The girls were found with their father, Matthew Hess. The three had been missing since last Wednesday.
Authorities issued an Amber Alert for the girls last night, because 12-year-old Keara is pregnant and in need of immediate medical care.
The Iredell County Sheriff's Office says Tennessee authorities contacted them this morning, saying they had found the family. Keara is still pregnant and will be treated by a physician in Tennessee, according to Iredell County officials.
The Amber Alert that was issued for the girls on Tuesday night has been canceled.
Matthew Hess is being held in custody by Tennessee authorities. Iredell County officials say they are asking the district attorney to file charges against Hess for not getting medical care for Keara.
Authorities have been searching for Matthew Hess and the two girls for a week. Hess wrote his estranged wife a note, saying that he was taking Sierra to Lakeshore Middle School last Thursday. The wife became suspicious when 12-year-old Keara didn't make it to her doctor's appointment.
Keara is 8 1/2 months pregnant and needs a medical procedure to protect her child.
I am glad they found the kids. Now they need to hang that guy.
wow... 12 yo 8.5 months pregnant...
The numbers seem to have an error.
“Keara” is 12 years of age and 8.5 months pregnant?
Now they need to hang that guy.
“because 12-year-old Keara is pregnant”
WHAT THE F*CK????
Someone needs to assume room temperature and PDQ!
illegally kidnapping two girls isn’t a good reason?
The article says that the pregnant twelve-year-old girl is “in need of immediate medical care.”
Is that Duckspeak for abortion?
I didn’t follow this one earlier, so I don’t know how she got pregnant, or what the story is with these estranged parents and their children. But there may be more than what appears on the surface, I suspect.
What the father intended or what the mother intended, or who’s responsible for the pregnancy, I don’t know.
It’s quite possible, unfortunately.
He adopted these girls years ago. How is them being with him kidnapping?
He’s the Father.
How is that kidnapping?
“Is that Duckspeak for abortion?”
She probably will need a c-section because of her pelvis size. Just guessing...
Does Roman Polanski have an alibi?
“Keara is 8 1/2 months pregnant and needs a medical procedure to protect her child.”
Makes me think they want to c-section, not abort.
Abortion wouldn't serve that purpose.
The numbers seem to have an error.
Keara is 12 years of age and 8.5 months pregnant?
Don’t count on it.
You must have missed the past 5 years of “The Maury Show”.
Why would it be unlikely? Many American 11-year-old young women would be able to get pregnant. Not safe, but able. She may be closer to 13.
He is the adoption father...he is white, the girls are black...speculation is he is the father of his adopted daughter’s baby...
Speculation is he kidnapped them to conceal the birth out of state...
I hope you’re right.
