Late Thursday, the AMBER Alert was extended from Georgia to South Carolina.

Officials believe Jason Arlis Johnson, 37, abducted Waskow.
The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office described Johnson as standing 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 175 pounds. He may have a shaved head.
The two could be traveling in a tan 1998 Ford Crown Victoria with South Carolina license plate KVJ240.
