Police have been searching for hours for Jayla, Author, and Amiya, but so far haven’t said if they have any leads as to where the three could be.
Family members sent out a call on FOX 5 begging the siblings to come back home.
“If y’all out there and you see us on the TV, please just come home,” the children’s grandmother Kim Patterson said. “We’re worried about you guys and we don’t know where you’re at. Please just come home.”
Six-year-old Jayla is described as being 4-feet-6-inches tall with a weight of 90 pounds. She has black braided hair with black beads and was last known to be wearing a pink shirt and blue jean shorts.
