Update: Missing Mooresville girls found in Tennessee

According to Iredell County Sheriff Phil Redmond, the Hess family has been found in Tennessee.
The Tennessee authorities stopped the faded-green 1993 Ford Explorer that was broadcast across law enforcement agencies nationwide in a be-on-the-lookout-for message on a highway in Smith County Tennessee.
The two children, Keara Hess and Sierra Hess, were turned over to the Tennessee Department of Social Services. Both females were transported to a medical facility for examination.
Matthew Hess is soon to be in custody on warrants drawn by the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office for child neglect and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Matthew will be awaiting extradition back to North Carolina.
Further details from the sheriff will be posted this afternoon.

According to the N.C. Amber Alert system, this alert has been canceled.
No other information was provided.
The Post will update the story as information becomes available.
