Citrus County Sheriff's Office asks for help

The Citrus County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in locating Edward Peters and his two young daughters, McKala and Madison Peters. The girls were last seen on Sunday, Sept. 8, at a home on Aloha St. in Inverness when Peters took custody of them against the wishes of their court ordered guardian. He then fled with the children in an unknown direction. 


Peters has a warrant issued for his arrest and has violated several court orders. Peters was on pre-trial release and also removed his GPS ankle monitor issued to him in August. The monitor was found off the northbound lanes of I-75 in Hernando County. Authorities are concerned for the safety and wellbeing of the two children. 

Madison Peters, 11, was last seen wearing jean capris with a pink T-shirt with “Minnesota” on it and black flip flops. She has eczema on both forearms.

McKala Peters, 6, was last seen wearing white shorts with a blue T-shirt with pink graphics on it and black flip flops.

Edward Peters, 45, is 5-foot 9-inches, with medium build and light brown short hair. 

Detectives say Peters may have traveled to the Orlando area. Peters is driving a 2003 Silver Jeep Liberty with FL Tag # 366LEJ. If you have any information as to the whereabouts of Edward Peters, or see this vehicle, please call 9-1-1.
