On Tuesday, the family of a teen abducted from her Georgia home has now been contacted by the kidnappers demanding a ransom of $10,000.
Ayvani Perez, 14, was taken from her home on 3894 Brookgate Drive in Ellenwood around 2 a.m., after two masked men pried open a back door of the home and found the family hiding and demanded jewelry and money. Shortly after, they shot the family dog and took Ayvani before leaving.
"We do believe the young lady is in harm's way. We are actively and diligently investigating this situation to make sure she is returned safely," Clayton County Police Lieutenant Marc Richards told KSDK news.
Ayvani is wearing blue and gray Star Wars pajama pants and a superhero shirt. An Amber Alert has been issued from Clayton County.
Police said the men may be driving a grey Dodge or Chevrolet.
If you have any information as to who these men are or the location of Ayvani please contact the hotline at 770-477-3513.
