ELKO, Nev. (AP) — Two Nevada children were found unharmed in Sacramento, Calif., after an Amber Alert was issued seeking their whereabouts.

Elko police Capt. Will Lehmann said the mother, Amber Schenck, voluntarily surrendered the children after relatives told her that an Amber Alert had been issued for their return.

The Amber Alert for 9-year-old Lillyanna Ramires and her 3-year-old brother, Martin Angel Rosales, was canceled Saturday.

Lehmann said the boy was already with Schenck on Wednesday when she was allowed visitation with the older girl, who was under the care of Nevada's child and family services.

Lehmann said Schenck was not arrested, but charges are likely.

Lehmann said the children were apparently taken by Schenck and Martin Cisneras Rosales.

Authorities said Rosales has a history of violence, leading to fear that the children were in danger.

ELKO, Nev. - An Amber Alert is in effect in California by the California Highway Patrol on behalf of the Elko Police Department in Elko County, Nevada.

A parental abduction occurred in Elko, Nevada on 8/14/2013. The children are Lillyanna Ramirez, a 9 year old Hispanic female, and Martin Angel Rosales II, a 3 year old Hispanic male. The suspects are Martin Cisneras Rosales, AKA: Martin Cisneros, a 33 year old Hispanic male, and Amber Schenck, a 29 year old white female, Ht: 59 Wt: 150 Hair: Sandy Eyes: Blue.

They are possibly driving a dark blue Ford Mustang with possible Nebraska plates or a temporary plate. The model year is unknown, but it is believed to be a late 80s to early 90s model.

Martin Rosales is the biological father of Martin Rosales II. Amber Schenck is the mother of both children. The adults took the children from Elko against DCFS orders.

"We would like to find the children and get them back here where we can put them in a stable environment and in a stable home," said Capt. Will Lehmann with the Elko Police Department.

Elko Police Department is in possession of Ex-parte court orders for both Children from the Fourth District Court stating the DCFS now has custody of Lillyanna and that the children are in danger of serious physical harm or death. Martin Rosales has violent tendencies when dealing with police. There is also a restraining order keeping him away from his son issued July 26, 2013.

The children were last believed to be in Sacramento, California and it is believed that the adults are attempting to enter Mexico with the children.

"Have them locate the vehicle, stop it, find out who's the vehicle and if it's our children," said Capt. Lehmann, "then they'll take them custody, notify us and we'll get them back here."

Please call 911 if you have any information regarding this Amber Alert.
