UPDATE: The two children were found safe with their mother in Florida, police say. See here for the latest information.
Two children have been missing, along with their mother, in Prince George's County, Maryland, for nearly a week, police say.
Melissa Hush, 35, took the two children, Michael Hush and Kaylee Moore-Stone, last Wednesday at 3 p.m. in the Berwyn Heights area, police said. Melissa Hush does not have custody of the children and they are legally required to be in the custody of their father and his family, according to police.
Berwyn Heights police said they did not trigger an Amber Alert because Melissa Hush didn't take them in a vehicle. Her car is still at her home on the 8400 block of 57th Avenue in Berwyn Heights, where the children were last seen, police said.
The children’s grandmother, Kathy Fisher, said she wants her daughter to safely return the kids to her.
"I’m concerned that they just need to be home. I think that they’re feeling scared right now. They’re not understanding what’s going on," Fisher said. "And Melissa, if you’re listening, just please bring them home. Just please, bring them home.
Police are asking that anyone with information call 240-204-1359.
