A Reno woman and her four young children are missing. Investigators believe she abducted the children and is headed for Mexico.An Amber Alert was issued in three states, including in California, when 34-year-old Claire Tourand failed to show up for a custody hearing over the weekend. It has since been canceled, but the search continues.

Tourand is not the custodial parent of the four children, who range in age from 4 to 9.

A judge has issued an order for their return, saying they are in danger.

Tourand is believed to be driving a white Mercury Sable, Nevada license plate 369SDH. Anyone who sees the car should call 911.
