Florida Department of Enforcement issued an AMBER Alert for a teenage girl from Tennessee who could be in Florida Friday.

According to FDLE, 17-year-old Daphne Westbrook has been considered missing and endangered from Chattanooga, Tennessee since October 2019.

Investigators say she could be with her father, John Westbrook, 42, who does not have legal custody of Daphne.

According to Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s tweet, new information likely places the father and daughter in Florida about one week ago.

They might be traveling in a 1971, orange Volkswagen Beetle with no license plate or front windshield.

Anyone with information can contact FDLE at 1-888-FL MISSING(1-888-356-4774) or the
Tennessee Bureau of Investigation at 1-800-824-3463 or 911.
