Amber Alert Issued for Abducted Children Following Mother’s Tragic Death in Loranger


LORANGER, La. — An Amber Alert has been issued for Jalie, 6, and Erin, 4, after their mother was found dead and they went missing from their Loranger home on Thursday, June 13.

Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards said 35-year-old Callie Brunett was discovered dead inside her locked mobile home by her father after she was reported missing by her parents 24 hours earlier. The last time they had spoken to her was on Tuesday morning.

The authorities reported that the girls were abducted before 8am, and an unknown white man is wanted for questioning in connection with a domestic violence incident that led to Callie’s death.

Erin has brown hair and eyes, stands at three feet tall, and weighs approximately 32 pounds. Jalie has brown hair and blue eyes, stands at four feet tall, and weighs about 58 pounds. The suspects’ clothing is unknown, as they were last seen at the time of abduction.

The suspect is believed to be driving Callie’s black 2012 Chrysler 200, license plate 859GML, which is missing the hubcap on the rear right tire and may have damage to the rear. He is considered armed and dangerous.

Sheriff Edwards emphasized the importance of the investigation, stating, “This time period is crucial. We need to find these children.”

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the children or vehicle should contact 911, Lieutenant Jacob Schwebel at 985-902-2037, or Crimestoppers of Tangipahoa at 1-800-554-5245.
