UPDATED: Car sought in New Mexico Amber Alert believed to be in Southern California

An Amber Alert issued for three sons allegedly taken by their mother in New Mexico was expanded to California on Sunday, as officials received information the involved car was spotted in the San Gabriel Valley, authorities said.
Six-year-old Lexintgon Wyatt and his two bothers, Lakai Wyatt, 8, and Lloys Wyatt, 9, are believed to have been taken in Albuquerque, New Mexico and driven to California by 28-year-old Laria Walker-Anderson, according to an Amber Alert issued by the California Highway Patrol after learning the woman and children may be traveling in Southern California. The suspected kidnapping took place during the early morning hours in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
They were last seen in a silver, 2009 Kia Spectra with a New Mexico license plate number of AAYR80, according to the CHP.
According to CHP logs, authorities learned of an electronic “ping” indicating the car had been on the 210 Freeway near Foothill Boulevard, just east of the 57 Freeway, in La Verne at 2:28 p.m.
Walker-Anderson is described as black, 5 feet 54 inches tall, 132 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.
Lloyd Wyatt is black, 3 feet 5 inches tall, 65 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing “Despicable Me” pajama pants.
Lakai Wyatt is also 3 feet 5 inches tall and about 65 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing gray pajama pants.
Lexington Wyatt is 3 feet tall, 50 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing yellow-and-white shorts.
Walker-Anderson was not formally accused of any crime on Sunday afternoon, Bernalillo County sheriff’s officials said during a news conference broadcast on the department’s Facebook page. She has legal custody of the children, and no arrest warrant has been issued.
But the woman had made threats of possible self harm, or harm against her children, to the children’s father via a phone conversation, and she was believed to have a .45-caliber handgun with her, officials said.
Due to the circumstances, officials wanted to make sure both the children and Walker-Anderson are OK.
Walker-Anderson had family in Southern California, officials added.
Anyone who spots the children, the suspect or the car is asked to call 911 immediately.
