    Investigators believe the children are with 29-year-old Christopher Christy, Sr., and 24-year-old Shannon Adams.

    Christopher Christy Sr., has multiple tattoos, including the letter “C” on both arms, the words “Turn ‘Em Out” on his left hand, and a star on his right arm. He was last seen wearing a light-colored t-shirt and camouflage pants, investigators said.

    Investigators believe they may be traveling in a 2005 cream-colored Chrysler PT Cruiser with Florida tag number 663HB. The vehicle has a donut tire.

    The group may be headed to North Carolina, FDLE said.

    "If located, DO NOT APPROACH, call law enforcement immediately," said FDLE on social media Thursday.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact FDLE or the Dade City Police Department at 352-521-1493.
