The police have so far not given any statements on whether anyone has been arrested or if the car was recovered.

The cops appealed to the public to be on the lookout for a white 2009 Lexus RX350 with an Alabama registration number 3880AR8. The SUV is said to be damaged on the rear passenger side, where it has been taped with clear tape. It’s unclear at this time if a member of the public was able to contact the police with vital information.

It’s reported that Harlow’s father had briefly run into a friend’s house only to return to find the car and his daughter had been taken.
