TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Authorities are searching for two young boys they believe were kidnapped by their father from their maternal grandparents' Florida home after their grandmother was tied up.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday night asked for the public's help in locating the boys, 4-year-old Cole Hakken and 2-year-old Chase Hakken.
Authorities allege that their father, 35-year-old Joshua Michael Hakken, entered his mother-in-law's house north of Tampa, tied her up and fled with the children. They said the children could be in a black 2006 GMC pickup owned by their father.
The news release identified Hakken and the children's mother, 34-year-old Sharyn Patricia Hakken, as suspects in the abduction.
If you see them, you can call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Department at (813) 247-8200 or call 1-888-FL-MISSING.
