Florida authorities issued an AMBER Alert Thursday evening after two young children disappeared and could possibly be on the way out of state.
NCMEC reports that 7-year-old Brian Mejias and 6-year-old Gabriela Mejias disappeared from the 900 block of Ohio Avenue North on Thursday in Live Oak, a small city in between Jacksonville and Tallahassee. Authorities said the kids could possibly be in a black Toyota Camry with black tinted windows and a Texas license plate, and in the company of a man named Ritchie.
Brian, who has brown eyes and black hair, is 4-feet-tall and was last seen wearing a red shirt and blue jeans. Brian is missing his upper teeth and has a scar on the right side of his forehead, below the hairline.
Gabriela, who also has brown eyes and long black hair down to her waist, is 3-feet-tall and was last seen wearing a pink dress. She has prominent dimples and most of her teeth are crowned.
Authorities indicated that the Toyota Camry could be traveling to Texas or Madison, Florida, in a caravan with two other vehicles. One of the other vehicles could possibly be a grey, Chevy Tahoe or Suburban with tinted windows and a Texas license plate.
Anyone with any information is urged to contact the Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office at 386-362-3222.
