The Spalding County Sheriff’s Office is actively searching the High Falls Road area for a missing 19-month-old child.

As part of their search, Sheriff Darrell Dix and deputies are going door-to-door in an effort to locate Anastasia Mercer.

Authorities say the child is believed to have been abducted by her father, 28-year-old Emmett Hobbs.

Hobbs is wanted for battery/domestic violence against Anastasia’s mother.

The apparent abduction appears to be related to a dispute with the 19-month-old little girl’s mother, officials say.

Anastasia was last seen wearing only a diaper, and with a Dora the Explorer blanket.
The GRIP will continue to report additional information as it becomes available.
