Louisiana State Police said the vehicle driven by suspect Harvey Eugene York, Jr. was found in Sabine Parish on early Monday. York and Lexi have not yet been found and it is unknown if they may have switched to another vehicle.
“The Louisiana State Police, Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Office, and other law enforcement agencies are actively searching for the , child and her abductor,” the Louisiana State Police said in a statement.
The girl was abducted in Houston on late Sunday after Lexi’s mother got into an argument with York, her ex-boyfriend, and told him to leave. The suspect then took Lexi and drove off, prompting an Amber Alert in Texas. York is not Lexi’s father.
