The alert was initially issued by the Nevada Highway Patrol after Lillyanna Ramires, 9, and her 3-year-old brother, Martin Angel Rosales, were taken from Elko, Nev., on Wednesday.

The two children are believed to be with Martin Cisneras Rosales, 34, who is also known as Martin Cisneros, and Amber Schenck, 30, authorities said.

The children “are in danger of serious bodily injury or death,” according to the highway patrol.

“Martin Rosales is said to have a violent history,” the agency said in a statement, which cautioned anyone who sees Rosales to contact authorities rather than approach him.

Anyone with information regarding the missing children was asked to contact the Nevada Highway Patrol at (775) 753-1111.
