4 Missing Ohio Children Believed to Be in Danger, Police Say
Officials have asked people from Ohio to Florida to be on the lookout for the children.
Police are alerting people from Ohio to Florida to be on the lookout for four children who are believed to have been taken by their mother.
The Lima Police Department in Ohio issued a desperate, all-caps missing children bulletin Tuesday, saying the four could be in danger. Cops believe they were abducted by mom Marianne Merritt, who they say has no custodial rights to them.
Police fear the children are also with Merritt's boyfriend, Charles Perkins, who is allegedly abusive toward them. Perkins is considered armed and dangerous, police said.
Law enforcement is asking for help locating Damara Croley, 13; Benjamin Karl-Leland Croley, 12; Patience Wilson, 9; and Damien Wilson, 8.
