The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) has issued an Endangered Child Alert after three children were taken by their non-custodial parents, and could be traveling to Minnesota. 

"The missing children are 6-year-old Analia Essex, 2-year-old Abigail Christian, and 1-year-old Michale Christian," the TBI says. "Their non-custodial parents Amanda Essex and Michale Darrel Christian are wanted for custodial interference."

The children and their parents were last seen in Van Buren County, Tennessee, on Tuesday, July 9. 

"They may be traveling to Minnesota in a white SUV," the TBI says. 

Anyone who knows their location or has information that could help find the children is asked to call 1-800-TBI-FIND or call the Maury County Sheriff's Office at 931-388-5151.

An Endangered Child Alert issued in Tennessee means that law enforcement believes "there is a concern for a child's safety," whereas an Amber Alert is when a child is believed to be in "imminent danger."
