The children had been seen by relatives around 3 p.m. Thursday at the park near their home on the 2200 block of Perry Blvd NW.

Friday morning, family members sent out a call on FOX 5 begging the three children to come back home.

"If y'all out there, and you see us on the TV, please just come home," the children's grandmother Kim Patterson said. "We're worried about you guys, and we don't know where you're at. Please just come home."
