RALEIGH, N.C. — The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons will activate the N.C. AMBER Alert System at the request of the State of Georgia.
Georgia has requested all contiguous states to activate their AMBER systems in the case of Jerry William Jones, who is believed to have kidnapped three girls and killed four people in Gordon County, Ga., about 50 miles north of Atlanta.
Here is the information on the suspect and the children who are believed to be with him.
The suspect was last seen driving a red 1991 Ford Explorer, with Georgia license plate
A warrant has been issued for Jones' arrest.
Anyone who believes they may have seen Jones, the car or the girls should contact their local police or Sheriff Jerry Davis at the Gordon County Sheriff's Office,
The children are believed to be in extreme danger. Although there is no intelligence that indicates Jones may be headed to North Carolina, the activation of the AMBER system is a prudent step to take.
