LAKE MARY, Fla. - On Monday morning, authorities announced that the children have been located and are safe.
Authorities are searching for a missing mother and her three children.
The Marion County Sheriff’s Office received a pick-up order that was obtained by the Department of Children and Families (DCF) in reference to the well-being of 3-year-old Jilleane, 1-year-old Brileigh, and 3-month-old Brody.
Investigators said the children’s mother, 25-year-old Pamela Lavan, has been avoiding contact with DCF in their efforts to assess the well-being of the children during an open child protective investigation.
The three children were last seen with Levan who is driving a black 2017 Cadillac Escalade with Florida tag #NRAY75. DCF believes the children are at risk of harm.
If anyone has seen these three children or Pamela, please contact the Marion County Sheriff's Office by calling 911.
