An Amber Alert for Kinzley Paige Hooper, a 9-year-old child, was rescinded minutes after it was issued on Monday.
An Amber Alert was sent out, and it was canceled 40 minutes later around 10 a.m.
The girl’s whereabouts and the reason the warning was withdrawn are being investigated by WRAL News.
Hooper is a white person. She has a height of 4 feet and a weight of 80 pounds. She has blue eyes and blonde hair, and her most recent outfit was blue jean shorts and a black top with a cow on it.
Hooper was said to be in the company of white guy Darrell Milton Boyd, 60, who is 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighs 210 pounds. Boyd has dagger and bulldog tattoos on his left arm and back, along with short gray-brown hair and hazel eyes.
The two might be driving a tan Buick Rendezvous CX with North Carolina license plates TKL-3081. They were last spotted at 1019 Powhatan Avenue in Asheboro. On the back window of the SUV, there is a huge “cancer” sticker.
Although their route of travel was unknown, Stokes County was a possibility.
A call to the Asheboro Police Department at (336) 318-6927, 911, or *HP was requested immediately from anyone with information.
