Authorities said the children are “in extreme danger,” as the woman allegedly claimed that she would shoot the children if the father did not give her money.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Portsmouth police at 757-393-5300 or the Virginia State Police at 1-800-822-4453 (1-800-VACHILD).
