Arrest made in Corbin kidnapping

Tennessee authorities arrested a man for kidnapping a 5-year-old girl from her babysitter in Corbin, in Whitley County.

Sheriff's deputies say 26-year-old Steven Green came from Idaho and took his 5-year-old daughter Kylee from her babysitter's home in Corbin Tuesday afternoon.

They say he then jumped in a taxi and went to the Greyhound Bus Station, in London to buy a ticket back to Idaho.

The Whitley County Sheriff's department coordinated with Tennessee authorities to arrest Green when the bus arrived in Nashville.

Little Kylee was found and is safe.

Green is charged with kidnapping and custodial interference.
