The vehicle was reported to be traveling westbound through Pope County on I-40. Upon receiving the information, the Johnson County Sheriff's Office, Lamar Police Department, Franklin County Sheriff's Office and ASP troopers responded to Interstate 40.
At 4:23 p.m., Johnson County deputies stopped the suspect vehicle near the Altus exit. The individuals in the vehicle were confirmed to be the suspects in the Amber Alert and were taken into custody. Majesty McClanton, the abducted child, was also in the vehicle and was found safe and unharmed.
