Douglas McCallum, 4, and Shelby McCallum, 2, were last known to be with their father, Mark McCallum, 52, on Wednesday, according to reports.


McCallum did not show up for a custody exchange Thursday, which is when Mason County Sheriff’s Office was called to investigate. Both parents are reported to live in Ludington.


Mark McCallum may be driving either a dark green 1995 Dodge pickup truck with Michigan license plate DALE12 or a dark blue 2005 Chevrolet Malibu with Michigan license plate 1CDX85.

He has family ties in the Grand Rapids area and in Arizona, police said in a news release.

Authorities have not yet released pictures of the kids or their father, or have issued an Amber Alert.
