A missing 4-year-old girl, Rebecca Lewis, who police report was abducted from her bed in Lakeland, Florida was spotted on surveillance video in Georgia with a family friend.

After issuing a three-state Amber Alert in Florida, Georgia and Alabama, a gas station surveillance camera captured footage of Rebecca with a man named Wild West Hogs.

Hogs, who legally changed his name from Matthew Clark Pybus, was a family friend who unexpectedly showed up at Rebecca's family home the night before she was kidnapped. According to the Orlando Sentinel, he hadn't seen Rebecca in several years.

Rebecca Lewis's 16-year-old sister last saw her sleeping on her bed. Officers conducted multiple searches with sniffer dogs and helicopters.

The Polk County Sheriff's Office reports that the 31-year-old Hogs is driving a Nissan Versa with an Alabama handicapped plate, 4JL26, that was reported stolen by his mother.
