Police in Glendale, Arizona say two teens and an infant haven't been seen since early October 2020, and believed they could have been in the Rock Hill area. Now, police say they aren't believed to be in danger and could be with family.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) says 17-year-old Claudia Huerta, 15-year-old Marcos Huerta, and 3-year-old Teraji Dillard went missing on Oct. 4, and may be with an adult man or woman. Glendale police say the three could be in Phoenix, but also said the children may be in Rock Hill as well.

On Friday, WCNC Charlotte learned that a detective had been in contact with the children's mother, who says she had no concern for their safety. Glendale PD says the children were removed from a group home for an unknown reason, and were reported as runaways by the home.
