CHIPPEWA COUNTY Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – We’re learning more details related to the amber alert issued during the weekend. A 22-year-old is in the Chippewa County jail after the sheriff’s office says he kidnapped a 15-year-old from the Holcombe area.

The suspect, Trevor Blackburn, was living in Tennessee before law enforcement officers say he traveled to the Wisconsin area.

Chippewa County Sheriff Jim Kowalczyk says Blackburn previously knew the victim and was talking to her online. The sheriff says law enforcement officers were investigating this relationship for about a year

“We’d been working this case since the summer of last year. These two had been communicating back and forth on social media. There was stuff sent back and forth between the two, photographs and so on and so forth.”

Blackburn is expected in court tomorrow morning for a bond hearing. The sheriff’s office is recommending multiple charges including kidnapping, burglary, and sexual assault of a child.
