Two children who went missing on Sunday, six-year-old Braxton Williams and 5-year-old Bri'ya Williams, have been found safe, according to WTLV .

WTLV's report says that Braxton and Bri'ya were found in the woods near their community.

Braxton Williams, 6, and his sister Bri'ya Williams, 5, were reported missing around 11:30 a.m. Sunday after family members couldn't find the pair, Jacksonville Sheriff Public Information officer Christian Hancock told reporters during a press conference Sunday night.

FDLE issued an Amber Alert and the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office has launched a search that includes K9's, air units, drones and dive teams in an effort to find the children, Hancock said.

"We're searching the surrounding areas, we're searching ponds, we're searching trashcans, we're searching everything. Again we're searching for these kids and we aim to find them," Hancock told reporters.
