Missing Paralyzed 4-Year-Old Girl Found

May 08, 2018

The search is over for 4-year-old Kalynn Turnbow of Dickson, Tennessee. The girl had been missing since early April.


Kalynn was last seen on April 4 with her father at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center where she received treatment for a broken leg.


Last year in November, Kalynn and her mother were in a bad car accident that killed her mother and left Kalynn paralyzed from the stomach down. Her mother, Shannon Turnbow, swerved to miss a deer and drove into a tree instead.



Authorities suspected that she was with her father, Jason Bradford, 44, of Cumberland Furnace, Tennessee.


On Monday afternoon, Bradford turned himself in, and Kalynn is safe, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.


“I think he finally saw that this was getting so much publicity that he made arrangements to come in and met with one of our detectives and the Department of Children’s Services and brought the little girl in,” said Dickson County Sheriff Jeff Bledsoe.



There was concern from the Department of Children’s Services and the Juvenile Court that Kalynn “potentially wasn’t being cared for properly.”


“I don’t know of any reason right now to say that he’s not caring for her medical needs,” said the sheriff.


Bradford will likely appear in court to determine if “there were any custody issues.”
