Nahville Metro Police questioned a woman Thursday morning who strongly resembled 29-year-old Lee Grace Dougherty, one of three fugitive siblings on the run from Florida.
"It was a case of mistaken identity,'' said Metro Police spokesman Don Aaron. "The maintenance staff called police because the woman strongly resembled the woman who is being sought.''
A nationwide manhunt began Aug. 2 for the trio who took off after firing shots at a Zephyrhills, Fla., police officer who tried to pull them over for speeding.
Hours later, three people wearing masks robbed the Certus Bank in Valdosta, Ga., about 210 miles north.
Authorities say a white sedan similar to the one involved in the Florida shooting has been spotted in Georgia and Chattanooga, Tenn.
