Soon after being added to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s Most Wanted, the suspect in an alleged kidnapping was in custody last week and his apparent victim safe.

Monday, the Fayetteville Police Department received a complaint of a domestic disturbance within the city. According to information released at the time, the suspect, 60-year-old Terry Wayne Taylor, was traveling through Fayetteville when he stopped and dropped off a woman.

However, the suspect left the city with the woman’s 29-year-old special needs daughter, who is nonverbal and was considered endangered.

Warrants were issued for the arrest of Taylor, and he was entered into TBI’s Most Wanted and the National Crime Information Center (NCIC). Later that night, Taylor was taken into custody in Sheffield, Ala.

“The young lady is safe, and investigators are working to reconnect her with her mother,” wrote authorities in a release to the public.

Taylor was also wanted in Alabama on other charges, according to Commander Coby Templeton of FPD. He was transported to Lauderdale County, Ala., to face those charges. Once that is completed, he is expected to be extradited back to Lincoln County to face charges here.
