Knoxville Police issue warrant in search for missing girl

A Knoxville man faces charges of specially aggravated kidnapping. The alleged victim, 12-year-old Ashley Bushue, missing since she left Whittle Springs Middle School, apparently minutes after her mother dropped her off for classes Friday morning.

Police aren’t sure what Ashley Bushue’s relationship to Seth Lee Mitchell, father figure or child-hood crush.

The charge of Specially Aggravated Kidnapping comes because of her age and allows for federal help if Mitchell’s taken her out of state.

He reportedly has family in Virginia. Ashley’s father lives in Illinois.

Though he faces felony charges, police have not put out an amber alert, saying they believe Ashley went willingly and that she isn’t in imminent danger. (WVLT)
