— Kenansville police say two missing boys may be with their mother in the Raleigh-Durham area.

Gloira Cruz Garica left Kenansville Elementary School with her boys, Edwin and Luis, on Friday.

The Department of Social Services had recently taken the boys from her and placed them in a foster home near Kenansville.

The trio was spotted later Friday at a Walmart in Wake Forest.

Police said they do not believe that the mother will harm the boys, but were still concerned about their welfare.

Anyone who sees the boys should call Kenansville police at 910-296-2150 or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678.
