Law officers believe two East Texas children are in grave danger after having been abducted.
Texas DPS issued a statewide Amber Alert on Tuesday night for 1-year-old Tru Speratos and 11-year-old Alex Arwood.
Atlanta, Texas, Police Chief Robin Betts told KSLA News 12 that the children’s 33-year-old aunt also is missing.
“She kind of made the habit over the last few weeks of coming by, picking them up and carrying them riding to let the 1-year-old go to sleep, according to the parents.”
The aunt, whose name authorities have not released, picked them up about 3 p.m. or 4 p.m. Monday.
“And since then we have not been able to find her whereabouts. Her family has been concerned and notified us this morning,” the police chief added.
The two girls last were seen at 4 p.m. Monday in a gold 2007 Honda Odyssey in the 300 block of West Tipton Street in Atlanta, Texas. The van bears Texas license plate MBD2390.
