Q: In the state of Georgia, can a parent legally take their children and not allow other parent to know where they’re at?

No papers or anything have been filed. One parent has moved out leaving the stay at home mom and children home. The father says he can take the children where he wants and doesn’t have to tell the mom where they’ll be. Can a father do that? Or do they have to tell the location so the mother knows?
