Original Story

Police in Harker Heights have issued an Amber Alert for 7-year-old Zoey Rogers, who they believe is in immediate danger.

Harker Heights police tell Channel Six the girl's mother, who does not have custody, and another man kidnapped Rogers near the Cinemark at Market Heights movie theater Saturday night.

According to police spokesman Sgt. Roosevelt Wilson, Rogers was with her father when he was approached and attacked by Tutankhamun Holt, 34. During the altercation, investigators said the girl's non-custodial mother Bobbi White, 36, coaxed Rogers into a vehicle. Holt and White then drove off with Rogers, police said.

Sgt. Wilson claims the abduction was not publicly reported immediately because police did not initially realize the mother did not have custody of Rogers.

As of Sunday afternoon, police said they believed Rogers was out of the state. Investigators have identified three possible locations where Rogers may be. But, those locations are being kept confidential, as the search continues.

She is described as a black girl, with black hair and brown eyes. She weighs 70 pounds and stands at 3 feet, 6 inches tall.

Below are photos of the two suspects: Tutankhamun Holt, 34, and Bobbi White, 36.


Holt is described as black with black hair and brown eyes. He is 5-foot-10 and weighs 170 pounds. White is also black with black hair and brown eyes. She is 5-foot-5 and weighs 115 pounds.

Police believe the suspects are likely driving one of two vehicles: a cream-colored Buick Regal or Lacrosse -- or a red Dodge Charger with black or red rims and Alabama license plates.

"The child is believed to be in grave or immediate danger," according to the initial Amber Alert, which was eventually sent out on Sunday.

If you believe you see the child or the suspects, please call 911 immediately.
