Noah Clare

GALLATIN, TN (WSMV) - The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has issued an Amber Alert in Tennessee and Arizona for a missing 3-year-old boy from Gallatin.

Investigators said it had been more than a week since Noah Clare from Gallatin and his cousin, 16-year-old Amber Clare of Beaver Dam, Kentucky, went missing. They are both believed to be with Noah's dad, Jacob "Jake" Clare. 

On Tuesday, TBI officials tweeted new developments in the case. TBI officials said Jacob Clare was originally facing a charge of custodial Interference. It is now Especially Aggravated Kidnapping. Thus, the alert has been upgraded to a Tennessee Amber Alert. According to an alert sent out by the Arizona Department of Public Safety Tuesday, the car was last seen near Parker, Arizona.

TBI officials issued an Endangered Child Alert for Noah on Monday, Nov. 8. Noah's family previously told News 4 they were hoping this alert would be elevated to an Amber Alert soon.

"Because that would send a push notification to everybody's phone in America so that everyone would be aware of the situation and the seriousness of it," Noah's uncle Adam Ennis explained.

TBI explained the process for issuing an Amber Alert.

If you see Noah, Jake, or the vehicle, call 911 immediately. If you have information about the case, please call 1-800-TBI-FIND.
