SMYTHE COUNTY, VA (WNCN) – An Amber Alert for a 14-year-old Tennessee girl who has been missing for nearly two weeks has been canceled after the two were located by the U.S. Marshals Service.

The 14-year-old and Benjamin Shook were located by the U.S. Marshals Service in Smythe County, Virginia. Shook have been taken to the Smythe County Sheriff’s Office.

The two were previously spotted in June at a Walmart in Marion, North Carolina.
