ANETH, San Juan County — The Navajo Division of Public Safety has issued an Amber Alert for two children that were taken by their father in Aneth about 4:20 p.m. on Thursday and are believed to be in danger.

Bailey Begay is 16 months old and is 2 feet tall and 25 pounds. She has brown eyes and black hair. She was last seen in a spaghetti-strap shirt with blue jeans. Her brother, who is also missing, is 3 months old. Braidin Begay weighs approximately 11 pounds. He has brown eyes and short black hair. His clothing is unknown.

Navajo Nation police said in a flyer that the two children were taken by their father, Brandon Begay, and are traveling in a brown-over-white 2005 Ford F-250 extended cab pickup truck with a temporary Arizona license. Begay has reportedly made threats of self-harm and the children are considered to be in danger.

It is thought that they could be traveling towards Cortez, Colorado; Moab; or Telluride, Colorado; or the Delores, Colorado, mountain area.

If you see or have any information regarding the whereabouts of the children or Brandon Begay call the Navajo Police Department Shiprock District at 505-368-1350 or dial 911.
