Amber alert issued by LAPD after four children were allegedly taken from grandmother

Suspects are believed to be children's parents

LOS ANGELES - An Amber Alert was issued early Saturday after four children were abducted by their biological parents from their maternal grandmother's home in the Boyle Heights area of Los Angeles.

The statewide alert was issued by the California Highway Patrol at 4:50 a.m., according to the CHP online incident page.

The children -- 7-year-old Enrique Felix, 5-year-old Justin Felix, and twin 12-month-old girls Veronica and Janeth Felix -- were in the care of their maternal grandmother when they were taken from the residence in the 1400 block of North Indiana Street at 12:30 p.m. Friday, Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Eddie Ortiz said.

Police said their biological parents are the ones that abducted them. The restraining order against the parents, 28-year-old Enrique Felix and 28-year-old Rosa Chairez, required that they only see their children by scheduled appointment, and under the supervision of the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, Ortiz said. Felix was known to be physically violent toward the children, Ortiz said.

The vehicle used in the abduction was a dark-colored, possibly gray or purple PT Cruiser with paper plates and missing a hub cap.

To report possible sightings, call 911 or the Los Angeles Police Department at (323) 342-4101 or (877) ASK-LAPD.
