Police are looking for Christopher Grier, 700 block of Knox Road, for an armed robbery that took place Friday on Williams Street in Grovetown, and for kidnapping his girlfriend and their 7-month-old son.

The Columbia County Sheriff's Office issued an amber alert today for Mr. Grier's girlfriend, 27-year-old Shashawna Odell, 500 Lou Lane, Grovetown, and his son, Christopher "C.J." Grier.

They were last seen in a gray Dodge Neon with a paper tag reading "Auto Credit Sales and Rental" heading west on Interstate 20.

Grovetown police referred all media inquiries to the Columbia County Sheriff's Office.

Columbia County sheriff's Capt. Steve Morris said the sheriff's office has issued two felony kidnapping warrants against Mr. Grier. He also said Grovetown authorities have issued four felony warrants against Mr. Grier, but he didn't know the nature of the warrants.

Anyone with information should call the Grovetown Department of Public Safety at (706) 863-1222, or the Columbia County Sheriff's Office at (706) 541-2800.

Pray for the Child and

Pray for the Child and Girlfriend. They usually become victims of homicide in situations like this. I hope Grier Sr. is the only one at the end.

I'm praying Shashawna and CJ

I'm praying Shashawna and CJ will be back with their loved ones soon. I saw her only Tuesday in the courtroom and assumed it was to stand by him. These young women in these dangerous situations and don't believe that they can get out of it. I'm helping take care of a precious baby right now whose father is was murdered in Grovetown. All you can do is hope and pray and love them. These are our children and friends that are dear to our hearts. What the cause is doesn't matter when you fear for them. Thank you Lord tonight my loved ones are safe. My heart is with each of you.

These so called "girlfriends"

These so called "girlfriends" are where they are because they choose to be. Most are on drugs you can deny it all you want to but they are. Its a sad situation for the children. I live in Grovetown and she these girls. Yeah they may be with one man but they'll do anything another man wants them to do for a "HIT". Crack whores are what they are called!!
