SHELBY COUNTY, Tx. -

UPDATE: The AMBER Alert issued for a missing teen and 2 small children has ended with all of them being found safe. The alleged 16 year-old was actually found to be a 20 year-old female and the mother of both children that were reported abducted. Investigators were able to interview family members and other people. The investigation led authorities to the woman and her children late Wednesday afternoon. The woman and her children were not harmed and had left her mother's home of her own free will. Sheriff Blackwell says that he would like to assure the citizens that no abduction took place.

 



 

An AMBER Alert has been issued out of East Texas for a 2 year-old, 1 year-old and 16 year-old. 

As part of its ongoing search, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is asking for help in finding Ivan, Paola and Viviana Alvarado who went missing from Tenaha, Texas. 

All three were last seen getting into a newer model black Cadillac Escalade on January 23, 2014. They may have been in the company of an adult male.

Paola is described as a 1 year-old with brown hair and brown eyes.

Ivan is 2 years-old. He has black hair, brown eyes, stands about 3 feet tall and weighs about 20 pounds.

Viviana is 16 years-old, has black hair, brown eyes and is about 5'6" tall and weighs about 160 pounds.

Shelby County Sheriff Willis Blackwell tells KTBS 3 News that Ivan Alvarado, 2, was reportedly abducted Saturday morning from the 1100 block of County Road 4249 in Tenaha. 

Authorities tell us Ivan is believed to be with his sister, Viviana Alvarado, 16. It's believed Viviana Alvarado also has her own 13 month old daughter with her.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of the above mentioned kids is urged to call 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678) or the Shelby County Sheriff's Office at 1-936-598-5600.
