Lawrenceburg, Tennessee (WAFF) - UPDATE: The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation confirmed Braelee Trapp has been found safe.

TBI plans to provide more details as they are available.

ORIGINAL: The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is searching for a kidnapped baby from Lawrence County.

According to authorities, 9 month old Braelee Rayne Trapp was forcibly taken from her home Wednesday night around 7 p.m.

The TBI says Tony Lynn Lanier Sr. is the person responsible and has issued an Amber Alert for the child.

Officials tell us Lanier was an acquaintance of the family and this is not a random act. However, the exact relationship between Lanier and the family is not clear at this time.

Lanier was last seen driving a black 2005 Chevrolet Equinox with an Arkansas license plate reading 430Y2K.
