Amber Alert

By  | 

A Georgia Bureau of Investigation official says the search for two missing toddlers has reached a "critical point."

Bureau spokesman John Bankhead says "every resource" is being used to try to find Jonah and Nicole Payne. Their mother reported the two- and three-year-olds missing Saturday evening.

Bankhead says officials "have very little to go on" as they try to recover the toddlers. He says the chances of finding the children safe are growing "slimmer and slimmer."

Law officials say they've thoroughly searched the woods around the family's east Georgia home, but will go over the area again today.

A spokesman for the parents says they are in "a state of shock" but trying to be positive.

He says both children have medical conditions and need help.
