SMYRNA, Tenn. - A woman related to a family missing for more than two weeks on Alaska's Kenai Peninsula was arrested Thursday afternoon in Rutherford County.

Lisa Hundley, 46, was picked up at a home on Hearthstone Court in Smyrna, about 20 miles southeast of Nashville.  She was wanted for violating her probation in Alaska. It wasn’t immediately clear why she was on probation.

Hundley’s granddaughters, 3-year-old Jaracca Hundley and 5-year-old Michelle Hundley, are missing, along with their mother, Rebecca Adams, 22, and her boyfriend, Brandon Jividen, 37.

The family was last seen May 27, the day after Memorial Day.

The family seemingly left their apartment in Kenai, Alaska, approximately 65 miles southwest of Anchorage, without packing.

Both their vehicles were left at the apartment in addition to the children's car seats and camping gear.

The family did not pay their rent due June 1.

The father of the two girls, Jaramiah Hundley, died in a motorcycle crash two years ago, on May 30, 2012.  His mother is Lisa, the woman arrested in Rutherford County.

Authorities said she is not considered a person of interest or suspect in the family’s disappearance.

The FBI has joined the Kenai Police Department in the investigation.

A spokesperson at the police department said more information was forthcoming in a news release Friday afternoon.
