Two young children are the subject of an Amber Alert issued overnight by the Illinois State Police.

Sanders said the children were found Thursday at their grandmother's house in Harvey, reports CBS Chicago.

They were believed to have been taken by their father, 46-year-old Lynn Washington, who is wanted for questioning about the shooting death of their mother, according to Markham Police Chief Mack Sanders.


The children were in the care of a family friend at the time of her death.

Lynn Washington is described as a black man, 40 years old, 5 feet 9 inches and about 180 pounds.

Markham Police Chief Mack Sanders said Robie and Washington argued in a vehicle shortly before she was shot. "For two, he has an active order of protection, that he knows about".

"She was in the auto and it was a domestic incident involving him and her, and she wound up getting shot", Sanders told the newspaper. Police said Roby and Washington were still married.

Illinois State Police said they could be headed anywhere in the state, KMOV reported.
