Two children involved in an Amber Alert in Indiana have been found dead.

Fort Wayne police issued an Amber Alert Monday for 7-year-old Liliana Hernandez and 6-year-old Rene Pasztor. The Allen County Sheriff believed the children were likely abducted by their non-custodial mother 29-year-old Amber Pasztor. That alert was cancelled Monday evening.

Allen County Sheriff's Department issued a statement saying an officer leaving the department was stopped around 5:30 by a woman who was driving a vehicle that matched the description of the vehicle in the Amber Alert.

The woman told the officer there were "two deceased subjects inside."
