NEWPORT, N.C. - a 12 year old Carteret County girl is back at home, more than a week after being abducted by a man police say is a sex offender.
Abigaile Lefevers is back in Newport with her father after authorities say she spent the past week in Florida with convicted sex offender, Timothy Newman.
Abigaile's father, Robert says when he finally got to see her, all he could do was hug his little girl.
"She was excited, I mean the first thing we done was hug and kiss and then started having to make tons of phone calls to family members to let them know she had made it home safely." Said Robert Lefevers.
Robert says Abigaile could be back in class at Broad Creek Middle School as early as next week.
"We've put in place for her to come back one day and talk to the counselors and all that good stuff. And them help me get a counselor outside of school that she can start talking to, you know to help with the healing process."
But for now, he says he's just glad his little girl is home.
