Police in Griffin are working to locate two missing children they say may be in danger.

Sage, 3-months-old, and Violet Dowell, 3-years-old, are said to be with their mother, Jenna Gromoll. They are believed to be in the company of Curtis Dowell. Dowell, 51, has active warrants for armed robbery and police consider him to be armed and dangerous.

Gromoll and the children were last seen in Griffin, but authorities say they could be in the Atlanta Metro area.

"The safety and well being of the children is our number one priority. Please help if you know where the children are located," the department stated in a Facebook post.

Griffin police said Dowell was later taken into custody and the children are safe.

Police initially stated Curtis Dowell's last name as "Powell." This story has been updated to reflect the accurate last name.
