A brother and a sister went missing on Sunday in Jacksonville, Florida. Police intensively searched for the children throughout the night and continued into Monday afternoon.
Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said that Bri`ya Williams, (age five) and Braxton Williams (age six), were last seen playing in front of their home at the Paradise Village mobile home park, at 10201 W. Beaver Street, sometime around 11:30 a.m.
The boy, although on the Autism Spectrum, is able to communicate with others, inform from the sheriff’s office.
Amber Alert is still active for the missing children. The search continued on the trailer park and in the nearby wooded area, north of the park.
Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams asked the community to remain vigilant. He also asked people who live in the area to search their properties (sheds, around abandoned cars, and under their mobile homes).
For now, it is not known whether the children were kidnaped or they wandered off on their own. Police fears that the children might be very far away from the city; if they are not on their own, they could be anywhere in Florida or across the country, sheriff’s spokesman said.
Police used dogs in the investigation. The search will continue until the children are found and brought back home safely.
