The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is issuing a statewide AMBER Alert for Cole Hakken,4, and Chase Hakken, 2.

The children were kidnapped from their custodial maternal grandmother in Tampa, Florida on April 3, according to a news release.

Officials say the children are possibly with their biological parents, Sharyn and Joshua Hakken.

The parents are believed to be armed and dangerous and may be traveling in a 2006, black GMC Sierra, Florida license number U95KT. The vehicle may have been seen in the area of Highway 30 and Highway 411 in Etowah, Tennessee last night around 8 p.m. EST.

If you have seen this vehicle or the children, you are urged to call the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation at 1-800-TBI-FIND or the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at 813-247-8200.
