A Dale County woman is on the run with her children; and police are asking area residents to help find them.
Ozark police say 33-year-old Charie Johnson had already lost custody of both her children because of a drug problem.
She picked up the kids for a visit April 7 and she hasn't been seen since.
The children, a 14-year-old girl and a 12-year-old boy, have since been turned over to the custody of the state department of human resources.
Police say Johnson may have taken the kids to California.
Anyone with information on the where-about of Charie Johnson or her children should contact the Ozark police department at 774-6803.
