The children and the suspect were last seen earlier on Tuesday when they were at the Sumter County Recreation Department, but specific details about the abduction were not immediately released. "[The children] are believed to be in extreme danger," the amber alert said.

Lundy is believed to be driving a maroon 2000 Lincoln LS with Georgia license plate RCA9127 and their last known direction of travel was north on Highway 19. It is unknown where they are heading.

Photos of either the suspect or the children were not immediately available, and authorities have not disclosed Lakeisha's relationship - if any - to the victims.

Lakeisha Lundy is described as a 36-year-old black female with black hair and brown eyes, is 5 feet 5 inches tall, and weighs approximately 180 pounds. Her hair is in a bun and she was last seen wearing a white top, blue jeans and a gold and silver necklace.
