“The girl is safe,” Campbell said, adding that the child was in the custody of Louisiana’s Department of Children & Family Services as of this morning. “The mom’s elated. She’s flying out today to get her child.”

Campbell was found after Shae Rebel’s father, Jesse Rebel, was pulled over while driving in Louisiana.

“It was a routine traffic stop by a sheriff’s deputy out of Desoto Parish,” Campbell said. “They conducted a traffic stop for reasons I don’t know, and when they ran a check on the driver of the vehicle, which is Jesse Rebel, they found a $120,000 warrant for his arrest.

“(The arresting officer) notified me and I advised them on what actions to take,” Campbell said. “The child is in protective custody.”

Preliminary reports included information that the girl, who was reported missing in November, might be in the company of her father, Jesse Rebel, and the pair could be in North Dakota, according to the website.

There was no information available, yet, on what charges Rebel was facing; however, he is expected to be extradited and booked on a child-abduction charge.Jesse Rebel

“It’s still a criminal investigation which has yet to be adjudicated,” he explained.
