The attack took place off Wood Road, near 3 Forks Church Road in Alexander County. That's near NC Highway 90 on the Lenoir side of Taylorsville.

Alexander County Sheriff’s deputies, Taylorsville police, N.C. State Highway Patrol troopers and other law enforcement personnel searched the area along Highway 64 at Highway 90, 3 Forks Church Road and Wood Road until the teen was captured.
