GREENEVILLE (WATE) - Authorities named two women of interest in a continuing Amber Alert for a seven-month-old Greene County boy, Drake Kingston Boyd. A third woman is known only by her nickname.

Authorities say Drake was taken by his father. His mother's stolen car was found Monday in South Carolina.

The alert was issued Sunday night after the child was taken from his mother by his father, David Jackson. Authorities say the alleged abduction happened during a violent assault around 4:00 p.m. Sunday.

Authorities said Jackson had his second visit with his son who stayed overnight Saturday. The mother lives in Kingsport.

When the mother tried to pick up her son on Sunday, she was assaulted by at least three female accomplices of Jackson's, who stole her silver 1999 Dodge Intrepid.

Drake is described as 27 inches long and 20 pounds. He was last seen wearing Toy Story pajamas, but may also be wearing a blue pant/shirt set.

David Jackson is 6'2" with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a black shirt.

Deputies say the women of interest in the case are:

  • Brooke Lashae Collins, 20, of Greeneville 
  • Ashley Mclynda Laughlin, 21, of Afton (who may have been taken against her will)
  • Woman only known by her nickname "Bunny"

Law enforcement recovered the mother's Dodge Intrepid Monday in Newberry, S.C.

A South Carolina Highway Patrol officer found the Dodge abandoned on I-26 near mile marker 74 on the east bound side. It was in the emergency lane.

Law enforcement launched a massive search in the area around I-26, but didn't find Jackson or the child.

The suspects could be driving a white Chrysler Sebring 4-door, possibly with a Florida license plate.

Authorities said David Jackson has a lengthy violent criminal history and is probably headed to Georgia or Florida.

If you know the whereabouts of Drake Boyd, please call the Greene County Sheriff's Office at 423-798-1800 or TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND

I had wondered if he could be the babies daddy. Seems to be a very bad dude.It says one of the women may have been taken against her will.

I saw this earlier and hope and pray the little boy is found and brought home to his mom safe and sound.  As far as these criminials go, they need to be thrown in prison for a very, very, very long time. Please keep us updated.
