(City of Atlanta Police Department)

ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta police say they’re searching for a missing toddler and his grandfather, both of whom disappeared after trying to complete a bunk bed purchase via the online sales site Craigslist.

Police issued an alert Friday morning on their official social media accounts asking the public to be on the lookout for the two, and to call 911 if they are seen.

Police identified them as 2-year-old Anthony Tolbert and his grandfather, 42-year-old Michael Taylor.

Police say in Twitter and Facebook statements that the two left an apartment around 11 a.m. Thursday to complete the transaction and haven’t been seen or heard from since then.

No other details were immediately released.

Police haven’t said whether they suspect the two are in danger.
