Los Angeles police are among those looking for three young children last seen on Monday at the Union Rescue Mission. 11-year-old Michelle Hogan, 4-year-old brother Jonathan and 3-year-old sister Jasmine are under a protective order from a Georgia court, and authorities there are concerned about the mental health of the children's mother.

28-year-old Carolyn Hogan drove the children across the country in a red Ford Windstar van with Georgia license plate BLH8859.

The family left the mission on Tuesday morning, but authorities believe they are still in the area.

“There is no criminal warrant for Carolyn Hogan,” said Lt. Paul Vernon, commanding officer of the Central Detective Division. “The top concern is for the children’s safety and well being.”

Anyone with information on these children or their mother is urged to call LAPD or the Los Angeles County DCFS Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-540-4000.

Update (11:25am): Lt. Paul Vernon tweets that the family has been found:

Hogan children, mother, and red van found by #LAPD officers near LA-Santa Monica border. All are fine. #DCFS will hold kids + return to GA
