AMBER ALERT CANCELLED

An Amber Alert has been issued for two children who were abducted by their father in Surprise on Saturday.

Officials say Heriberto Mendoza assaulted the 22-year-old mother of the children, Alexis Escalante, dragged her to his vehicle and took the kids as well.

The children are Danna Escalante-Mendoza, a 5-year-old girl, and Heriberto Escalante-Mendoza, a 3-year-old boy.

Mendoza is believed to have recently purchased a gun and has made threats to harm the mother and kids.

Police are looking for a red 2002 Dodge Ram with Arizona license plates reading ‘BLX0530.”

If you know where they may be, contact Surprise Police immediately at 623-222-4000.
