Man wanted in kidnapping of Lowcountry 4-year-old arrested in Mississippi

Police cruisers line the Johns Island subdivision where 4-year-old Heidi Todd was reported missing

Police in Charleston, South Carolina are searching for a missing 4-year-old girl.

Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg told News 2 that Heidi's mother was "brutally beaten" and is hospitalized.

Charleston police confirm 4-year-old Heidi Renae Todd of Charleston was back with her dad and other relatives.

The child's father was out of town training with the Coast Guard when Heidi disappeared and has returned, Tecklenburg said. As she was entering her home, she was attacked from behind by a man who had a knife, court records state.

In addition, police said a private citizen made another $10,000 donation for information leading to Todd's recovery.

Evans, who wore a red jumpsuit, handcuffs and shackles during Friday's hearing, told a USA magistrate that he was released from prison two weeks ago.

An officer was checking on a vehicle in Riverside when he saw a man asleep inside along with a little girl who wanted out, reports. He has a flame tattoo on his left cheek and a thunderbolt tattoo on his right cheek.

They believe the intruder followed Brittany home from dropping off the children at school in the morning. "Officers could see that she had significant facial trauma and markings as if she had been tied up".

Tecklenburg said everything is being done to find out what happened to the child. They were not harmed.

Taylor said, "At the present time, we are trying to unravel a motive".

As he ran Evans' name through a national database, Evans asked him to hold Todd.

'Keep your eyes or ears out for Heidi or for this gentleman of interest that we'd like to talk to about the incident'. The workers notified the police, who arrived and approached the man.

According to Mayor Tecklenburg, Heidi's mother was in fair condition and awaiting surgery as of February 15.
