A distraught Georgia mother made an emotional plea to her husband Sunday for the safe return of her 4-year-old daughter after cops say the man took off with the girl Friday.

“I know you love Madison," Renee Kerr said to her husband during an interview with MyFOXAtlanta.com. "You need to think what is best for her at this point.”

Police said the girl, Madison Kerr, was last seen Friday night with her father Jerry Jones, 51. Jones was an elementary school teacher in Hall County until last December, when he resigned after being arrested and charged with inappropriately touching four female students in his third grade class, MyFOXAtlanta.com reported.

Jones, who doesn't have legal custody of Madison, is believed to be driving a white 1996 Ford Taurus with Georgia wildlife tags BW6B02.

The rear passenger side of the car is believed to be damaged with red paint.

Madison weighs around 42 pounds and is 3'7'' tall. Jones is 5'8'' tall and weighs 155 pounds. He has gray hair, brown eyes, a mole on his left cheek and a receding hairline.
