SIOUX FALLS, SD (AP) - Federal authorities say two children taken by their non-custodial mother in Wisconsin are thought to be in the Black Hills area.
U.S. marshals say the mother and children could be camping in a remote area and extreme weather conditions could be difficult to deal with.
Officials say Cathy Brown took the children - 9-year-old Dalton Brown and 11-year-old Averie Brown - from Antigo, Wisconsin last month.
The Marshals Service says Brown is wanted by the state of Wisconsin for interfering with a custody order, a felony charge. Authorities say another adult, Amanda Hull, also known as Amy Clark, may be with Brown and the children.
The Argus Leader says they are most likely driving a 2001 red Chevy Silverado pickup with a Wisconsin license plate of LV5652.
