DENVER -- Sheriff's deputies in Weld County are asking for the public's help in finding three children, officials believe are in danger.
Deputies received a court order Tuesday from the district court directing them to locate the three children ages 6, 5 and 3 years old, said Shane Scofield of the Weld County Sheriff's Office. The children have been missing since.
The order stated the children are in imminent physical or emotional danger while in the custody of their mother, Evelyn Elmira Jewell, said Scofield.
Police said they are searching several areas for Jewell and her children. Police believe she may try to head towards Mississippi, Scofield said.
Police said they are looking for a black four-door Honda with temporary tags.
Jewell, 24, is described as being 5 feet 4 inches tall, weighing 100 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Weld County Sheriff's Department at (970) 304-6500.
