HAWKINS COUNTY, Tennessee (WDEF) – The TBI isn’t giving specifics about the recovery of Amber Alert girl Carlie Trent.

But they do show us Gary Simpson in custody with a Friday morning mugshot.

And they say they will prosecute him to the full extent of the law.

Two citizens spotted the two in an ATV-only access area of rural Hawkins County Thursday.
