PORTSMOUTH, VA. (WUSA9) - Virginia State Police has issued an Amber Alert for two children, ages 5 and 1, from Portsmouth, Va.
The children are believed to be in extreme danger and were last seen Friday around 8:50 a.m. in the 1100 block of Carrington Crescent.
The children are believed to have been abducted by Asia Dominique Jarvis. Police say Jarvis has made threats to kill both children before.
The children are identified as Dominique Eugene Jarvis and Messiah Khyon Jones-Jarvis.
Jarvis is the mother of Dominique and Messiah. The father has custody of the two children. Our sister station WVEC reports that Jarvis has two warrants on file for felony abduction.
