Brooklyn and her friend, Desire Hall, 16, disappeared from the Main Event Entertainment bowling alley in Alpharetta, on January 14.

Police state that it’s likely both Spires and his daughter altered their appearance to evade capture. According to the Alpharetta Public Safety’s Facebook page, the pair were spotted in Warner Robbins, Georgia. They were traveling in a black 2001 Ford Taurus, with license plate number, CAY7195.
Brooklyn stands four-foot-eleven inches and weighs around 100 pounds. She has brown hair and blue eyes. Spires stands around five-foot-seven inches, weighs roughly 150 pounds, and has brown hair and blue eyes.
In July 2016, Brooklyn was the center of a national AMBER Alert when she ran away with her dad. She was located shortly after, and Spires was charged with numerous sex offenses.
Anyone with any information on their whereabouts should call 911 immediately.
