"She left with her brother," said Sargent Cassandra Davis, "Her adopted brother." Within hours a picture of the getaway car was released to the media.
"We did put out info on a possible vehicle in the hopes of locating her," said David.
The girl and her alleged abductor were found in Memphis. She was unharmed.
"It's not something everybody has," said Lieutenant Carl Minden with the Pulaski County Sheriff's office. "But it is becoming more common."
Lieutenant Minden said after a crime is committed, asking whether the home has video surveillance has become a part of routine questioning.
"And it's not as astronomical a price as it used to be," he said.
Around $3,000 for a four-camera surveillance installation said James Wheeler, co-owner of "B-Safe Security" who has been busy with video surveillance installations.
"It seems like it's more and more everyday," said Wheeler.
Wheeler said relying on fingerprints and witnesses to solve crimes doesn't compare to a clear shot of what someone looks like.
"Anytime you can get a picture," he said. "Figure out how tall someone is, what they're wearing, so you can have a description later on."
"It's solved a lot of cases," said Minden. "So it's a pretty beneficial tool."
Cameras can help solve a crime once it's happened, but experts say even their mere presence can deter criminals.
