The children were last seen on Friday in the 5100 block of 15th Street Court in Bradenton, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office. Details about the exact circumstances have not been released and it is unclear why it took nearly a week for the amber alert to be issued.

The suspect has been identified as 40-year-old Jaima Gadeaun, who is described as a white female with blonde hair and blue eyes, standing 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds. She is believed to be the mother of the children, though authorities have not confirmed that.

Jaima is thought to have taken the child in a green 2016 Toyota Corolla with Florida license plate number BNZQ08.

The first victim is Joseph Gadeaun, a 10-year-old white male with blonde hair and blue eyes, standing 4 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 120 pounds. He was last seen wearing black shorts and a dark colored shirt with bears on it.

The second victim is Jacqueline Gadeaun, an 8-year-old white female with black hair and brown eyes, standing 4 feet tall and weighing 65 pounds. She was last seen wearing a green top and neon orange shorts.

The third victim is Jocelyn Gadeaun, a 6-year-old white female with blonde hair and blue eyes, standing 3 feet 5 inches tall and weighing about 40 pounds. She was last seen wearing a black and white striped top, black pants, and a white sweater.

The fourth victim is Jowella Gadeaun, who is described as a 12-year-old white female with brown hair and brown eyes, standing 5 feet tall and weighing 133 pounds. She was last seen wearing a long sleeve gray shirt with gray and white sweatpants.

Anyone who sees either the children, the suspect, or the suspect vehicle is urged to call 911 immediately, or call the Manatee County Sheriff's Office at 941-747-3011 if you have any other information that could help investigators.
