TIPTON COUNTY, TN (WMC) -

A man and his daughter were located and arrested after they were missing for four days.

Tipton County Sheriff's Office said Kinlee Quesnberry went missing September 11 around 5 p.m.

Quesnberry was believed to be with her father, Donald “Bruce” Quesnberry, Jr. He was a fugitive with an active warrant for contributing to the delinquency of a minor in Illinois.

Tipton County Sheriff’s Office said Quesnberry set up a GoFundMe account to finance his trip to Tipton County, where his daughter lived, despite having a court order to have no contact with his daughter.

Thursday, detectives found Quesnberry and his daughter walking down the street in Memphis.

The detectives approached the two when they said the younger Quesnberry began resisting. They said she bit one of the deputies and assaulted three others who tried to take her into custody.

She was eventually arrested and charged with aggravated assault, three counts of assault on a police officer, vandalism, and being a runaway.

The elder Quesnberry is charged with custodial interference, violation of an order of protection, and harboring a runaway child.
