ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- An AMBER Alert has been issued for two boys from Georgia who were last reportedly seen in a town west of St. Louis.
KMOV, our affiliate station in St. Louis, is reporting that the two brothers, 9-year-old Ben Cleary, and 7-year-old Henry Cleary were last confirmed seen Sunday in Tennessee with their father, 46-year-old Daniel Cleary.
On Friday, Missouri police received two reported sightings in the Washington, Missouri area. After viewing surviellance video at an area gas station where the boys were reportedly seen, police determined that the individuals in the footage were not the boys nor their father.
Another sighting near Washington was reported, but police there are withholding any information until they can conduct further investigation. They currently have patrols out looking for the family.
Daniel Cleary was last seen driving a silver 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee with temporary Georgia plate number 10742627. Police think he might have taken the children to other spots including Reno or Tahoe, Nevada, or Deltona, Florida. They also believe they will be in or pass through the St. Louis metro area.
Ben is 56 inches tall, weights 66 pounds, has medium length brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a light blue winter vest. He also has a six-inch scar on the back of his hamstring.
Henry is 53 inches tall, weighs 60 pounds, has medium length brown hair and green eyes. He was also wearing a light blue winter vest the last time he was seen. He may also go by the name Daniel and has a scar on his right index finger.
Daniel Cleary is about 6-feet tall, weighs 220 pounds, has medium length gray hair and brown eyes.
