Tulsa police have been searching for 3-year-old Miracle Crook and 2-year-old Tony Crook since Friday. Officials conducted search parties over the weekend and into the week.

The kids were last seen on surveillance video at a convenience store in the area Friday morning. The children's paternal aunt said her world turned upside down when she found out they were missing.

“Please, I beg you, if you have them, let them go,” said Althea Cooper, the aunt.

Officers arrested the children’s mother, Donisha Willis, on complaints of child endangerment and assault on an officer. Police said Willis did not have custody of the kids and has not been forthcoming during the investigation.

Cooper said her brother, the father of the toddlers, is in jail. Officers took him to speak with Willis.

“She gave him a black stare,” said Cooper. “He asked her if the kids were in heaven and she gave him a blank stare.”

If you have any information concerning the children's whereabouts, you are asked to call the Tulsa Police Department at 918-596-9222.
