Sheriff John Everett called AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio and asked that people obey the barricades that have been set up around the county and especially in the area where law enforcement is working to find the missing child in the Tate Road area.

Deputies and other law enforcement officials will be enforcing the areas and will write citations for those who disobey the traffic barricades.

Public officials are asking all residents to stay inside tonight if at all possible.
