Authorities have issued a Florida AMBER Alert for a 5-year-old girl and 6-year-old boy last seen in Jacksonville.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement said 5-year-old Bri'ya Williams and 6-year-old Braxton Williams were last seen in the 10000 block of West Beaver Street in Jacksonville.

According to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, the two children were playing outside their home when they disappeared around 11:30 a.m. A family member called authorities to report them missing.

Bri'ya is 3 feet tall and weighs 30 lbs. She was last seen wearing black leggings and a grey sweatshirt with colorful writing on the front.

Braxton is 3 feet, 4 inches tall and weighs 40 lbs. He was last seen wearing a red sweater and blue jeans. Investigators said the boy is on the autism spectrum but will communicate with others.

Investigators are using K9s, dive teams, helicopters and drones to search for the children as deputies go door-to-door.

"Obviously, we're at about seven hours plus that they've been missing, so they could realistically be anywhere in Florida if they're not alone," JSO Public Information Officer Christian Hancock told WTLV. "If they are alone, obviously, they're in danger because they're five and six years old."

Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to call the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at 904-630-0500, or dial 911.
