FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WLS) -- Police in Fort Wayne, Indiana, said two children reported missing in an Amber Alert Monday have been found dead.

Liliana Hernandez, 7, and Rene Pasztor, 6, were last seen at 6:21 a.m. Eastern Time in Fort Wayne. The Allen County Sheriff's Office said it was believed the children were likely abducted by their non-custodial mother, 29-year-old Amber Pasztor.
