AMBER Alert: Hayleigh Wilson & Benjamin Shook

SURGOINSVILLE, Tenn. - The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has issued an AMBER Alert for a girl missing from Hawkins County. The 14-year-old was seen at a North Carolina Walmart with a 41-year-old ex-con who is wanted for failing to register as a sex offender.

The TBI told us Hayleigh Wilson left her home in Surgoinsville around 10pm Monday, June 22. She was with Benjamin 'Ben' Shook, who the Surgoinsville police chief said she met on a dating site.

Police say her mother and step-father woke up to notice their maroon 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac was missing. Then, they couldn't find Hayleigh.

Her father told News 5 WCYB's Kristi O'Connor she's an A student and this is unlike her.

Hayleigh Wilson’s dad says he still has hope she will come home

By Allie Hinds
Published: June 30, 2015, 6:00 pm



One week after state and federal investigators issued an Amber Alert for 14-year-old Hayleigh Wilson from Hawkins County, her father says he still has hope she will come home.

“I want her to know that I love her and Hayleigh bug, I want you home,” Hayleigh’s dad Eddie Wilson said.

Hayleigh was last seen with convicted sex offender Benjamin Shook.

Since the Amber Alert was issued, investigators have discovered surveillance video of Shook with Hayleigh. They have also recovered the truck they were in, but still no Hayleigh or Shook.

Wilson said he now clings to pictures of his missing daughter and his faith.

“Sometimes things happen and we question God,” Wilson said. “But you know through this here, this gives me more strength to rely on him. You know, he says come to me and I’ll bear all your burdens. You know, he will, if we just let him.”

It is a heavy burden for any parent to bear, his14-year-old daughter, missing, last seen with a sex offender.

A 14-year-old girl who vanished more than two weeks ago with a convicted child molester has been found in a trailer park in Virginia.

Hayleigh Wilson, 14, allegedly stole her father's pickup truck and drove to meet 41-year-old sex offender Benjamin Shook after being seduced by him via online messaging app Kik.

She fled her home in Surgoinsville, Tennessee, and went on the run with Shook for 16 days - during which the two are thought to have lived almost entirely outside, in the woods around Virginia and North Carolina.

~Snipped~


'Begging for a shower': Hayleigh and Shook were caught in a trailer park in Atkins, Virginia, pictured above. The two reportedly knocked on a trailer door at 5am asking to wash themselves


Tip-off: Cole Billes told local news how she told the pair she wouldn't alert authorities when they knocked on her door - then dialed 911 while Shook was using her shower

But their time on the run came to an end on Tuesday after a woman called 911 after the two knocked on the door of her trailer in Atkins, Virginia, begging for a shower.

Cole Billes told Virginia news station WCYB that Hayleigh and Shook knocked on her door at 5am, and admitted they were on the run from the law.
