The Chicago area family of two missing brothers is pleading with the boys' father to bring them home."We love him so much, we love the boys so much. We want them back. We want everybody back. We want our family back together," said Joyce Connolly, Michael' Connolly's aunt.

The aunt and grandmother of Michael Connolly spoke out on Thursday night in Oak Lawn.

Connolly is believed to be on the run with his two sons, 9-year-old Duncan and 7-year-old Jack. They've been missing since Sunday when Connolly failed to return the boys to their mother at a police station in Leroy, Illinois. The couple had recently divorced.

An Amber Alert for children was issued earlier this week.
