The Louisiana State Police and Jackson Parish Sheriff’s Office have issued a Level II Endangered/Missing Children, Welfare Concern Media Advisory, and need assistance in locating four children and their mother, 33-year-old Amanda Morgan of Chatham.

Four children, 11-year-old Allison Morgan, 9-year-old Brayden Morgan, 8-year-old Autumn Morgan, and 4-year-old Adalynn Morgan, were last seen with their mother in a blue 2015 Ford F-150.
