Missing Bella Vista Teen Found In Goshen, Man Arrested

BELLA VISTA, Ark. (KFSM) — Police have located a missing Bella Vista teen and arrested the man with whom she was last seen.

Bella Vista police said 15-year-old Hillary Alsip and 34-year-old Derrick Cobler were found in Goshen.

Police had been searching for the pair all of this week after Alsip disappeared with Cobler.

An anonymous caller reported to 911 that the pair, which had been missing since Tuesday (June 18), were in Goshen early Friday morning. Police were dispatched to the area, according to Goshen Police Chief Mike Ball.

Cpl. Jessie Sorrell spotted the pair, which prompted Cobler to run, Ball said. Cobler was caught moments later after a short foot chase.

Ball said Cobler was being processed at the Washington County Detention Center.

He added that Alsip was safe and appeared to be in good physical condition.
