An AMBER Alert in Gordon County on Tuesday, June 6 resulted in multiple charges for two adults both locally and in Loudon County, Tenn.
The Gordon County Sheriff’s Office, along with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation put out the AMBER Alert for Skylee Miranda Aline Morgan age 14, who was reported missing from Gordon County on Tuesday. According to that alert, she was last seen in the vicinity of Baymont Inn near I-75 in Calhoun around 11 p.m. Monday night.
At the time of the alert, officials with the GCSO believed Morgan to be in the company of Emily Page Sherer, age 21, and believed Morgan was in “extreme danger.” They asked for the public to be on the lookout for a 2017 Subaru Impreza bearing Arizona license plate CAS 2410.
According to reports in Loudon County, Tenn., a deputy with the Loudon County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call of a reckless driver traveling northbound on I-75 in a blue Subaru with dark-tinted windows.
The deputy was told by dispatch that the vehicle had no visible registration and that the vehicle matched the description of an active AMBER Alert. The deputy followed the vehicle and initiated emergency equipment. The Subaru led the deputy in a chase, where, according to reports, speeds of 120 MPH were reached in a 65 MPH zone.of
The Subaru led deputies around several highways and roads off I-75 toward Nashville, Tenn. The car then took a dirt road, driving up a hill where it attempted to get away but for reasons unknown, stopped.
Deputies ordered the occupants out of the vehicle and arrested Emily Page Sherer, 21, Tempe, Ariz., and Arrow Jay Sims-Smith, of Rossville, Ga. Morgan was found safe in the backseat of the vehicle.
In Tennessee, Sherer and Sims-Smith have been charged with felony counts of evading arrest. They are being held without bond in Tennessee at press time.
According to Gordon County Sheriff’s Office, both Sherer and Sims-Smith will face felony kidnapping charges locally.
The investigation into the kidnapping continues at this time by GCSO detectives.
