Georgia police are searching for two brothers believed to have been abducted by their father.
Police say 46-year-old Daniele Clearly, who is believed to be armed, picked up Ben Clearly, 9, and jenry Clearly, 7, from their mother on Dec. 19 and failed to return them to her on Wednesday.
The boys' mother, Theresa Nash, went to Clearly’s home after he failed to make required daily contact with her and found his house to be cleared out, MyFoxAtlanta.com reported.
"Nobody has made contact with them and we have been unable to make contact since the 22nd. He's abandoned his car. He’s driving a car that nobody knew about. His house is cleared out. He's only using cash," Nash told MyFoxAtlanta.com.
Police say they are possibly driving in a silver 2002 Jeep Cherokee traveling on the west side of Nashville, Tennessee.
Nash told police that Cleary’s friend confirmed that he had purchased a handgun last month, and police have confirmed that he is carrying it with him.
Police say they are concerned for the safety of the children, and that he does not have family in Tennessee, MyFoxAtlanta.com reported.
Daniel Clearly is described as a white male with medium-length gray hair and brown eyes, approximately 6 ft. tall and about 220 pounds.
Ben Cleary is described as a white male with brown medium-length hair and brown eyes, approximately 4’6’’ tall, and 66 pounds. Henry is described as a white male with brown hair and green eyes, who is about 4’3’’ tall and weighs about 60 pounds.
