Authorities in central Minnesota are searching for a man, woman and four children, with the Stearns County Sheriff's Office saying the four kids may be in danger. 

The sheriff's office announced around 5:30 p.m. Saturday that it is looking for Robert and Erika Herrington and their four children, Landon and Carter, both 8, Briella, 3 and Delilah, age 2. 

"They are believed to be together and traveling in a 2015 Hyundai Sonata, white with a black top," the sheriff's office said, noting the vehicle has Minnesota license plates BWD-364. 

"There is a Domestic Assault No Contact Order in place restricting Mr. Herrington from being around his wife or children. There is concern for the children's welfare due to this and other conditions they may be in," the release said. 

Anyone with information about their whereabouts, or anyone who spots their vehicle, is urged to call the Stearns County Sheriff's Office at 320-251-4240, or call 911.
