KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The FBI is offering a $5,000 reward for information that would help find two young children from Kansas City, Missouri, who have been missing since Nov. 9.

Meanwhile, their mother has been charged with kidnapping. WDAF-TV reports that 7-year-old Avontay Reed and 4-year-old Kelvontae Cooper had been placed with an aunt due to their mother’s mental health problems and drug abuse. Police say the mother, Mattina Marshall, took the children from their aunt’s home on Nov. 9.

Marshall was located Tuesday at a motel but the children were not with her. She told authorities they were with their father.
