ROGERSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has issued an Amber Alert for a missing 5-year-old in East Tennessee.

The TBI said Summer Moon-Utah Wells was reportedly last seen outside of her home in the Beech Creek community on Tuesday evening. She was last seen wearing grey pants and a pink shirt.

Earlier on Wednesday, the TBI issued an Endangered Child Alert for the girl, but the TBI said new information and growing concern for her well-being lead the bureau to issue a statewide Amber Alert.

Anyone with information should call the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office at 423-272-7121 or the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.

Editor's note: The TBI previously reported Wells' age as 4. This story has been updated to reflect the TBI's correction.
