An AMBER Alert was also issued in Florida for Daphne Westbrook.

A nationwide search is underway for the 17-year-old girl.

The Hamilton County District Attorney’s Office out of Tennessee shared information on the case with Colorado media outlets back on March 2. John Oliver Westbrook is accused of kidnapping his daughter, Daphne Westbrook, in October of 2019. Daphne was legally supposed to come home to her other family following a weekend visit with her dad in Chattanooga. Daphne was also with her dogs at the time.

Photos of both Daphne and Westbrook are at the top of this article. The Hamilton County District Attorney’s Office adds that Westbrook frequently travels to Colorado.

“Daphne is being held against her will, unable to communicate with the outside world,” the Hamilton County District Attorney’s Office shared in a release. “Our investigation shows she is endangered both physically and mentally.”

In November 2020, Daphne was reportedly seen in the Denver area. In February, John Westbrook spent several weeks in the Pueblo area.
