Kids Recovered, Parents Arrested
After a four day manhunt for a pair of kidnappers, North Carolina deputies have tracked the couple down in Grayson County, Virginia.
On Wednesday, January 19, 2005, deputies arrested Alisha Chambers and James Canter.
Watauga County Sheriff Mark Shook said, "We're glad this is over.
The kids are safe and sound, that's the best part."
Deputies received information that the couple was driving a black 2000 two-door Ford with Tennessee tags.
The tipster said two other adults were in the car as well as the abducted kids, 11 month old Breanna Chambers and her two year old brother James.
Deputies believed Chambers and Canter were heading towards Grayson County, Virginia or Knoxville, Tennessee.
Acting quickly on the lead, deputies headed towards Virginia and Tennessee looking for the vehicle.
With help from Virginia authorities, deputies found the black Ford on the side of the road in White Top, Virginia.
Chambers and Canter were arrested, and the children, who are unharmed will be returned to North Carolina.
