HUMANITARIAN CRISIS - FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN HELP AFGHANISTAN





ROANOKE COUNTY POLICE UPDATE: Emma, Cameron, and Colin Allison have been safely located near Florence, South Carolina.

As a result of our investigation, we learned that Ruby Allison had transported the children to Florida and later decided to return to Roanoke.  Their location was later narrowed to I-95 North in South Carolina. The South Carolina Highway Patrol was alerted and stopped the vehicle with Ruby and the children shortly after 4 pm.  

Ruby has been taken into custody pending extradition to Virginia.  The children have been turned over to authorities in South Carolina who will coordinate their return with Roanoke County Social Services.

We would like to thank the South Carolina Highway Patrol for their quick response to our request for assistance.

Additionally, the successful resolution to this investigation can be attributed to the close collaboration with the US Marshals Service, FBI, and a variety of other state and local law enforcement agencies.  I’d like to thank all of these agencies and all of the personnel involved for their hard work that led to safely locating these children.
