SUBJECT: Kingsport Police Requesting for Citizens to Be on the Lookout for Missing Mother and Three Possibly Endangered Children
DATE: October 22, 2020
CASE #: Pending
GENERAL NARRATIVE
The Kingsport Police Department is requesting citizen assistance in locating a mother, Whitney Elliot, and her three young children, Cloe Barnette, Creed Elliot, and Zandyn Elliot (ages 3, 2, and 1 respectively).

Ms. Elliot failed to appear in court yesterday, and her whereabouts, as well as the whereabouts of her three children, are currently unknown. As such, Ms. Elliot is considered missing, and her three children are considered missing and endangered.

They are believed to possibly be traveling in a silver Kia Sedona minivan of unknown year with unknown license plate number.

A photograph of Ms. Elliot is included in this release. No photographs of the children are available at this time.

Citizens are asked to be on the lookout for these individuals and their vehicle. Anyone who sees them or knows their possible current whereabouts is asked to make every possible effort to keep them in sight and contact their local law enforcement agency immediately.

The Kingsport Police Department can be reached by calling the Criminal Investigations Division at 423-229-9429 or Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111 or simply 911 if emergency conditions exist.

Alternatively, if an individual who is able to supply information related to this or any other case wishes not to be identified, tips can be submitted anonymously via online “Citizen Feedback” forms available at the following link:
