Savannah Pruitt’s parents shared their agony over their daughter’s disappearance.

"It's like having your soul ripped out of your body," Randall Pruitt said during a press conference last week, ABC News reported.

“You can’t think, you can’t eat, you can’t sleep, you can’t rest -- life has just ceased for us since she left.”

Kevin Rowson, a spokesperson for the FBI field office in Atlanta, said Savannah Pruitt used to live in Lawrenceville, Georgia. The family moved to Madisonville in late December, WATE reported.

Savannah Pruitt is 5 feet, 3 inches tall, weighs 110 pounds and has blond hair and blue eyes.

She has two cellphones and both pinged an area about a mile and a half across the border into Kentucky. Officials said the phones have been turned off since Jan. 14, WATE reported.

If you have seen Savannah Pruitt, you can call the Monroe County Sheriff's Office at 423-442-3911 or the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND (1-800-824-3463).
