Rebecca was last seen at home in Florida on Saturday morning, but was spotted at a gas station hundreds of miles away in Forsyth, Georgia, with Hogs (above) at around 6.30pm
Wild West Hogs showed up unexpectedly at Rebecca’s family home on Friday night, Fox Carolina reports.
The family had not seen him for two years.
He legally changed his name from Matthew Clark Pybus and is driving a stolen grey 2012 Nissan Versa with an Alabama handicapped plate 4JL26, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office said.
The vehicle was reported stolen by Hogs’ mother.
The sheriff’s office said that they are not sure which direction Hogs is traveling in, but he was obviously driving north from Florida.

Rebecca appears to be in good health in the footage, authorities said, and was last seen wearing a pink dress.
Hogs was last seen wearing a light-colored t-shirt and blue jeans.
He is described as 5ft 8ins tall, with red hair and blue-green eyes. He has a scar on the left side of his head in the shape of the letter ‘L’ and a tattoo of a blue cross and a Chinese symbol.
Rebecca’s grandmother Oma Mae Lewis made a heartfelt plea for the little girl’s return.
Hogs (above, with Rebecca) legally changed his name from Matthew Clark Pybus and showed up at the Lewis family's home unexpectedly on Friday night, authorities say
‘If there’s anyone out there, anywhere, that can help us bring Becky back home, please bring her home to us,’ she told Fox Carolina.
‘She’s a beautiful blond-headed baby that just loves anybody and anything.’
Rebecca’s parents told authorities that they searched the trailer park area for an hour before calling police.
Deputies conducted multiple searches of their residence and conducted searches on houses in the park, but did not find Rebecca.
Sheriff’s office K-9 and bloodhound officers and a helicopter also searched the area.
The local search for Rebecca has now been discontinued, but the Amber Alert remains in place in Florida, Georgia and Alabama.
Anyone with information about Rebecca or Hogs’ whereabouts is urged to call the tips hotline on 1-877-419-0934.
