Homerville, GA - Police are asking for your help in finding a father and daughter who disappeared almost a week ago.

"I need to see my brother," Deborah Kinlaw, Henry Montague's Sister, said. "I need to see him. I need to see him. [crying] I need to see my niece. I need to see them come home."

Henry Montague and his three year old daughter Tyrahne Smiley were last seen by his family in Homerville on Thursday, where he picked Tyrahne up at her mom's house in South Carolina on Easter Weekend.

"There's no indication that she's in any kind of danger or that he's a danger to her or himself," Jeb Turner, Homerville Police Department, said. "This is simply a missing persons report, and they just will not issue an amber alert for that."

When asked if they really just vanished, Turner said, "that's correct. Vanished. Exactly."

Homerville Police say Henry and Tyrahne were seen in a convenience store in Waycross on Thursday night. They were traveling back to Henry's girlfriend's house in Ludowici, Georgia before disappearing.

"I want her to be back home obviously, but right now I just want to know that she's okay, that she's safe, that she's fine, (and) that she's getting everything that she needs right now," Krystal Smiley, Tyrahne's Mother, said.

According to the Homerville Police Department: They were last seen driving a '92 blue Mercedez Benz, with a Georgia tag number CAN0413.
