Tucson police are looking for children abducted by their non-custodial birth parents.

Police say the parents took 5-year-old Luis Ramirez and 7-month-old Kahmila Ramirez after they assaulted a caseworker during a supervised visit at a park near 29th and Kino.

The parents left in a green Toyota Camry with license plate number BKH8427. Police say the father tied a caseworker up to a tree and, along with his wife, took the two children.

The car has since been found in Nogales near the border, but the parents and children are still missing. Police say evidence found in the car suggests the father shaved his beard and or mustache, and everyone had changed clothes.

The father, Luis Ramirez, was last seen wearing a red and white striped polo and blue jeans.

The mother, Andrea Ramirez, was last seen wearing a white shirt and blue jeans. Her hair was in a bun.

Luis Ramirez Jr. was wearing a grey polo and khaki shorts. Khamilia Ramires was wearing a onesie with yellow ruffles. 

A felony arrest warrant has been issued for Luis and Andrea for one count of kidnapping and two counts of domestic violence kidnapping.

Tucson Police Department Captain James Scott said the parents are believed to have left the state.

According to the TPD, two days prior to this incident, Luis and Andrea were arraigned on 20 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor (not involving their children).

With the recent charges and display of violence, the Tucson Police Department is extremely concerned for the safety of these children. Detectives are asking anyone with any information on their possible whereabouts to please call 911 immediately.

If you have any information, call 911 or 88-CRIME immediately.
