The Corpus Christi Police Department is seeking the public's help finding 3 missing children and a woman.

A post from the CCPD Blotter says the three kids, a 2-year-old male, a 2-year-old female, and a 4-year-old female were reported missing at about 6:05 p.m. Saturday.

The post says they were last seen with 19-year-old, Helen Alvarez, at approximately 5 p.m., walking away from the Walmart at the intersection of Staples Street and Caramel Parkway with a shopping cart.

The female is described as 19 years old, is approximately 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighs approximately 115 pounds, has brown hair and brown eyes, and was last seen wearing an orange halter shirt and blue jeans, according to the blotter.
