On Sunday, Barry County Sheriff's Mick Epperly issued an endangered persons advisory for two little girls who have been missing since July 10.

Law enforcement officers believe their father, Matthew Chapman, took the sisters. Chapman, 35, has friends in other states. Officers believe he is armed and dangerous.

Abbey Chapman, 7, and Isabella Chapman, 3, were last seen by their mother, Amber Chapman, when their dad picked them up for a trip to Silver Dollar City. Since then Chapman has sold his vehicle and disappeared with his daughters, who live with their mother in Exeter.
