AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- An Amber Alert has been issued in Georgia after two children went missing from Florida on Wednesday.

Investigators say Cole and Chase Hakken were at their grandmother's home in Tampa on Wednesday when their father broke in, tied up their grandmother and took off the children. The grandmother was just granted temporary custody of the children earlier this week.

Cole is a 4-year-old white male with brown hair and brown eyes. He is 3'9" and weighs 44 pounds. Chase is a 2-year-old white male with brown hair and brown eyes. He is 3 feet tall and weighs 33 pounds.

The children are believed to be with their parents, 34-year-old Joshua Hakken and 34-year-old Sharyn Hakken. They are said to be armed and dangerous.

Joshua is a white male with brown hair and brown eyes. He is 5'9" and weighs about 175 pounds. Sharyn is a white female with brown hair and hazel eyes. She is said to be 5'4" and weighs 150 pounds.

The four of them are believed to be traveling in a 2006 black GMC Sierra with Florida tag number U95KT.
