Authorities issued an Amber Alert on Thursday (December 27) for two missing Suwanee boys who had been visiting their father in Roswell.
Media and police reports say that Ben Cleary, 9, and Henry Cleary, 7, were believed to be with their father, Daniel Cleary of Roswell. The youths reportedly spent Christmas break with their father, but had not been returned to their mother by Wednesday afternoon.
Authorities believe Daniel Cleary may be headed for Tennessee.
“I last heard from them on the 22nd of December,” Theresa Nash told WSB-TV. “Since then, his phone has been shut off. I got suspicious when I didn’t hear from them by the end of the day Christmas.”
Another media report said Daniel Cleary had planned to take the boys to an aquarium in Tennessee.
