KEY POINTS

  • Two children, identified as Miracle Lashay Crook, 2, and Tony Demone Crook, 1, have been missing since May 21.
  • Police are searching nearby areas to find the children.
  • An Amber Alert has not been issued as there isn't enough evidence to say if it was an abduction.

Two toddlers were reported missing in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and the search continues. The children were last seen by their mother on Thursday in the area of 2200 S 96th E Ave.

In a Facebook post early Saturday, police urged the public to help with information on the whereabouts of the two children, identified as Miracle Lashay Crook, 2, and Tony Demone Crook, 1.

Lt. John Adams with the Tulsa Police Department said the department has canvassed the area and are reviewing surveillance video.

“[We] haven’t called this an Amber Alert yet, because we don’t have enough to call this an abduction, we are pushing it as far as we can because we know the kids are in danger,” Adams said. “Our hope is someone saw them and took them in, and just hasn’t gotten around to calling police.”

If anyone has any information about the location of the two children, they are asked to contact the police at (918) 596-9222.

Earlier this month, a 2-year-old boy who was missing for more than 24 hours was found safe. He disappeared from his family's property north of Salina. Authorities had been searching nearby wooded areas. The searchers on the ground were followed by deputies on horseback.

"I wouldn’t have thought he would have got very far, but I’m just hoping and praying that he’s just hiding somewhere," volunteer Leslie Maner said at the time.

He was found about two miles from where he went missing.
