Law enforcement said they believe the children are in grave immediate danger. They said Camerena could be headed to Mexico where she has family.
Freddy Camerena, the children’s uncle, explained to KHOU 11 he and the children’s grandmother tried to get the children back inside the home before their mother took them.
The family shared home video of the children playing just before the holidays. Their grandmother takes care of them and is devastated. She hopes her daughter will decide to return the children.
Officials say Camerena is possibly driving a gold 2011 Chevrolet Cruz LT with Texas license plates FGJ6333.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Camerena or the children is asked to contact the Texas Department of Public Safety at 832-627-1138.
