MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -

Authorities say the 57-year-old man accused of abducting his niece from school more than a week ago was captured by two men who held him at gunpoint until law enforcement could arrive.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director Mark Gwyn told a news conference that Donnie Lawson and Baptist minister Stewart Franklin found Gary Simpson and Carlie Marie Trent on Thursday in a remote wooded area only accessible by all-terrain vehicles.

He said they found them in Hawkins County, the same rural part of eastern Tennessee where Carlie disappeared. Gwyn said Franklin held Simpson at gunpoint while Lawson called the police.

Gwyn called the men heroes for deciding to check the remote area after authorities had issued a call for help finding Carlie. Gwyn says there are no indications that Carlie was harmed, but she is being taken to a hospital as a precaution to be examined.
