SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. (WTVF) — Update:
Faith Threet has been found safe in Adairville, Ky., according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

Kevin Pitt, with whom Threet was said to be, is in custody.

Investigators are working with the district attorney's office on charges to be made against Pitt.

A family member of Threet's said two hunters happened to find Pitt's vehicle in a wooded area of Adairville Saturday morning. Recognizing the vehicle as Pitt's, along with its license plate, the hunters called police.

A K9-assisted search led to the discovery of Pitt and Threet, who were on foot having abandoned the vehicle.
