Peters was arrested in Citrus County on July 28th for domestic battery. He was then arrested twice towards the beginning of August- each arrest just one week apart- for violating an injunction for protection against domestic violence. 

Now officials say on Sunday, September 8, Peters took his daughters, 11-year-old Madison and six-year-old McKala Peters, from a home of of Aloha Street in Inverness without the permission of their current guardian. He then fled the area and removed the GPS ankle monitor issued to him in August. The device was later found on the northbound side of Interstate 75 in Hernando County. 

Authorities say they are concerned for the safety and well-being of the Peters girls, and encourage anyone with information on their whereabouts to contact 911. 

Madison Peters was last seen wearing jean capris, a pink t-shirt with "Minnesota" written on it and black flip flops. She has eczema on both forearms. McKala Peters was last seen wearing white shorts, a blue t-shirt with pink graphics on it and black flip flops.

Edward Peters is said to be 5'9'' with medium build and light brown short hair.

Detectives believe he may have gone to the Orlando area in a 2003 Silver Jeep Liberty with FL Tag # 366LEJ.
