Jorelys was abducted at about 5 p.m. Dec. 2 near a playground at the River Ridge at Canton apartment community. The Canton Police Department, which spearheaded the search and has faced a barrage of criticism over how it handled things, did not call in the Georgia Bureau of Investigation's Child Abduction Response Team until Dec. 4.
In his strongest words since the search for Jorelys began, Garrison said today that "the CART team should have been activated overnight.
"They should have been in place early Saturday morning (Dec. 3). And if all those things had taken place, we would not be standing here having this conversation about the actions of that deputy."
