McKINNEY, Texas (KTEN) — McKinney police issued an Amber Alert early Friday for two missing sisters who are believed to be "in grave or immediate danger."
Police said the girls — six-year-old Jennifer and nine-year-old Jessica Burns — are believed to have been abducted by a woman identified as their grandmother, Jame Burns, 60.
The suspect was driving a black Ford Escape sport utility vehicle with Texas license plate MTC-609 when last seen in McKinney, 30 miles south of Sherman. The vehicle has a scratch on the front, silver door handles and a black interior.
Police said Jame Burns is white, 5'-2", 230 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. McKinney PD is working with the FBI on the case.
"The girls were last seen just before six last night at a restaurant near Central Expressway and Virginia Parkway, where they had been having a supervised visit with their father, along with CPS, who had temporary custody of the girls," police said in a written statement.
Jennifer Burns was wearing glasses with purple frames, a light blue shirt with a sparkle design, and blue jeans when last seen.
Jessica Burns was wearing dark frame glasses, a red long-sleeve shirt with black shoulders/sleeves and blue jeans.
Police said the girls were taken from a Cici's Pizza restaurant on Thursday evening. They were there on a supervised visit with their non-custodial father, Justin Burns. He is being held on kidnapping charges.
