The children have been identified as 5-year-old Katelyn Marie Kitchen, 7-year-old Timothy Gene Kitchens, and 8-year-old Darren Marcus Cribbs. All children are described as white. Both Darren and Timothy have brown hair and brown eyes; Katelyn has blonde hair and blue eyes.

Anyone who sees either the mother or any of the children is urged to call 911 immediately, or call the Marshall County Sheriff's Office at (256) 582-2034 if you have any other information that could help investigators.
