(Newser) – A terrifying story out of Georgia ends with a missing 14-year-old girl: Police say two men broke into a Clayton County home around 2:15am today looking for money and jewelry. When the mother living there didn't have anything to turn over to them, they shot the family dog and took off with Ayvani Hope Perez, police say. Ayvani's mother had tried to hide her two children, WSB-TV reports.

Ayvani is just 4-foot-9 and 93 pounds, and was last seen wearing Star Wars and superhero pajamas. "We are extremely concerned, because if anybody could hurt a puppy just like this, what else could they do?" a police officer says. "We are very concerned." The home invasion appears to be random, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports; the family had just moved to the neighborhood about a month ago.
