UPDATE: Family members tell Eyewitness News, Jaleel Jones and Enyrah Wilkins were found safe Monday evening.

Buffalo, NY (WKBW) - A frantic search is underway for two missing children from Buffalo. Now their families are making a desperate plea for help.

13-year-old Enyrah Wilkins and her little brother, 5-year-old Jaleel Jones, were reported missing by their family at 7:00 on Monday morning.

Their family tells Eyewitness News that Enyrah and Jaleel left their home on Cambridge Avenue to visit their grandfather, but never made it back.

Carla Jones, their Aunt, pleads "If you are somewhere you can see this, let them know, 'that's my auntie, that's my auntie'. Call 9-1-1 if you're in a bad situation. Please, please, please come on home."

Police say it appears a 13-year-old female might have taken her 5-year-old brother and left the house at some point either overnight or early this morning.

Five-year-old boy Jaleel L. Jones is 3'6", 70 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a black coat, black hat and yellow and black Jordan sneakers.

13-year-old Enyrah Wilkins is 5'8", 100 lbs and was last seen wearing a black leather coat, brown pants and blue-white and gray Nike boots.

Anyone with information regarding their whereabouts is asked to immediately call the E District police station at 851-4416.
