RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

The Tennessee teenager in the spotlight of a nationwide Amber Alert will be in court Wednesday facing theft charges.

About two weeks ago, the alert was issued for 14-year-old Hayleigh Wilson. Police said Wilson was with convicted sex offender Benjamin Shook.

Wilson and Shook were found in southwest Virginia. She now faces charges for theft over one thousand dollars, police say, for the theft of her step-dad's truck.

Wilson will be in juvenile court Wednesday morning.
