TBI: AMBER Alert cancelled; Haley Brandenburg found safe, man in custody


The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says a missing Roan County teen has been found safe and a suspect is in custody.

TBI tweeted that 17-year-old Haley Brandenburg was recovered in Henry County, Ga. and 31-year-old Robert Garren is in custody. 

Both were the subject of a statewide AMBER Alert issued Thursday. TBI said Brandenburg hadn’t been seen since Monday and believed she was with Garren. 

Friday, authorities said they recovered the mini-van the duo were believed to be traveling in. It was found in a parking lot in Chattanooga.

TBI said Garren will face criminal charges in connection with Brandenburg’s disappearance.
