New information today about three missing Columbus children believed taken by their father.
They may have been spotted in Jackson, Tennessee. That's about 55 miles east of Memphis. A witness reported seeing the man driving out of town, headed north.
The Georiga Bureau of Investigation issued the Levi's Call Wednesday for Eddie Harrington. His girlfriend thinks he took Cedric Harrington, 3, and one year old twins Aliyah and Agena Battle from their home.
Harrington is driving a 2002 green Chevrolet Impala with a cracked windshield. The tag number is from Indiana, 93-L4740.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation issued an Amber Alert, which is similar to Levi's Call for missing children, after the possible sighting Thursday morning.
Harrington's girlfriend and mother of the children, Agena Battle, told a Columbus newspaper this is not the first time he tried to leave with the children. The father left a note with the mother that led to concern by police, and they issued the alert early Wednesday.
If you see the vehicle, the man or the children, you should call any police.
