ARCADE, Ga. (WSB) – A Georgia police department has issued an AMBER Alert for a missing toddler believed to be in extreme danger.

Baylee Sue Peeples was reported missing early Thursday morning on Rock Forge Road in Jefferson, Georgia.  Authorities said she was abducted by her father, Robert Joseph Peeples.

He is 39 years old and may be in a white 1993 GMC Vandura van with a Georgia tag RIK1620.

WSB reporter Kristen Holloway spoke with Baylee’s mother, who said Robert Joseph Peeples drove off with the girl after saying, “You will never see her again.”

There is a possibility that Peeples could be headed toward Mississippi but police have not released more information.
