A state media alert was issued this week for a 5-year-old Talladega boy who authorities believe was taken by his father on Dec. 21.

State law enforcement officials issued a be-on-the-lookout alert after the abduction was reported Saturday afternoon. Authorities are searching for Thomas Evan Diggs and his biological father, Thomas Eric Diggs, 35.

Diggs is a 35-year-old white male with blue eyes and brown hair. He is 5-feet-9 and weighs 195 pounds, although he may have lost weight recently. He was last seen wearing a multi-tone green sweater, blue jeans and white shoes. He drives a white 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the license plate BA14549. The son is approximately 3-feet-tall and weighs about 65 pounds, with blondish hair. He was last seen wearing camouflaged pants and a Gap jacket with a John Deere shirt.

Anyone with information on this incident or the boy’s current whereabouts should contact the Talladega Police, Detective Division at 256-362-4508 or call the anonymous tip line at 256-299-0011.

Talladega Police Chief Alan Watson said the case did not meet all the necessary criteria for an Amber alert.
