Police: Keep Lookout for Missing 8-Year-Old

Posted:

West Virginia State Police have issued an Amber Alert for a child they say was abducted by her father, who is a murder suspect.

Virginia State Police officials want people to be on the lookout because they say the two have ties to Bedford County.

Police in Mercer County, West Virginia are looking for Tracey Lee Atwell, 49, in connection with the murder of his wife two days ago.

They say Atwell abducted his daughter Porshia, 8, Thursday afternoon. Investigators say she is in extreme danger. He is possibly armed with a 357-magnum.

Officials say Atwell may be driving a 1999 white Jeep Cherokee Laredo... with West Virginia plate number 6-C-3-2-0-2.

Call 911 immediately if you see Atwell or this vehicle.
