AMBER Alert canceled for 8-year-old girl in Buncombe County

BUNCOMBE Co., N.C. (WSPA) — Sheriff’s deputies say they’ve located an 8-year-old girl.

The little girl was returned home shortly before 8 a.m., our sister station WSPA reported.

Bailey Lynn Queen had last been seen Tuesday night at a home on Asbury Acres in the Candler community.

Deputies said in a news release earlier in the day that they responded to the home for a domestic incident. Bailey’s mother told deputies that said her ex-husband, Joshua Randy Queen, assaulted her before taking their child and stealing her car.


Joshua Queen has an open warrant for assaulting a female and could be armed with a gun, according to deputies.
